WESLEY HILLS, N.Y. -- The power is back on Tuesday after a large tree branch was knocked down on East Willow Tree Road due to high winds, taking power lines with it, according to Orange and Rockland Utilities.

The outage occurred around 10:30 p.m. last night when the tree landed on the power lines, causing a fire, which in turn caused a transformer explosion, said Ramapo police.

East Willow Tree Road was closed during the work but has reopened.
