LUCERNE – A man was injured Thursday evening when he fell from a tree.


Northshore Fire officials reported responding to a residence on First Avenue where the man had fallen from a height of about 20 feet while trimming a tree. The accident occurred shortly after 8 p.m.


The man's identity and the extent of his injuries weren't released.


Responding to the accident, REACH air ambulance landed at Lucerne Harbor Park shortly after 8:30 p.m., where it waited to transport the man to an area hospital.


While the west end of the park was used as a staging area for the helicopter and Northshore Fire ambulances, firefighters diverted traffic away from the area.
