No one was injured. The tree, which stands just a few feet west of a bus stop, lost the limb at about 6:20 p.m. The downed limb blocked both lanes of Evergreen Boulevard. Vancouver police diverted traffic through nearby parking lots. A crew from Vancouver's Public Works Department used a chain saw and a bulldozer to remove the tree limb. A A http://www.columbian.com/news/2014/sep/17/grant-house-vancouver-tree-limb-falls/ 1/2 9/19/2014 Tree limb falls, blocks road near Grant House | The Columbian Stevie Mathieu (/staff/stevie-mathieu/) Columbian assistant metro editor  360-735-4523  @col_Stevie (https://twitter.com/col_Stevie)  Send an Email (mailto:stevie.mathieu@columbian.com) More Like This + Add a comment...
