MISHAWAKA, Ind. (WNDU) – A tree limb came crashing down Monday afternoon, bringing utility lines with it.

Mishawaka police are urging people to avoid the area of Grape Road and McKinley Avenue. The intersection is expected to be closed for at least four or five hours, well into Monday evening.

The limb downed utility lines, but an email from Lt. Tim Williams did not specify whether first responders were dealing with live wires.
