A tree and wires fell Wednesday night in Northwest Washington, where police were forced to a stretch of two roads in the Tenleytown area, officials said.

D.C. police reported a tree down at River Road and 42nd Street, and a power line also fell in that area about 9 p.m. Both roads in that area were closed off, and remained so at 11:30 p.m. Officials did not know how long they Street would be closed.

Pepco reported about 1,200 customers without power in Northwest Washington late last night, but it was not immediately clear if the downed tree caused the outages.
