Tree falls into Coeur d'Alene drive-thru

Posted: Updated:
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -  A Tuesday night thunderstorm knocked a tree into the Rogers Burgers drive-thru in Coeur d'alene.

Employees noticed the tree around 7 p.m. The 100 year old tree split in half, but missed the building.

"It's a very old tree, and I know back in the day there used to be families that would come and gather here," said Marshal Busby, the general manager at Rogers Burgers. "I know that it's a tree that lots of generations know about, and it's a historic tree and they say that it competes with a lot of the California tropical trees in how beautiful it is."

Busby says the tree did not cause any major damage, and actually attracted some business. Unfortunately, what's left of the tree will have to be removed.
