Downed tree takes out power lines in Fredericksburg
UPDATE: The road has now reopened.
Lafayette Boulevard is currently closed around the 1100 block because of a downed tree that took out some power lines, Fredericksburg Police say.
They believe the heavy rain and wind caused the tree to fall. Virginia Power is on the scene working to remove the tree and restore the power lines, but for now, Lafayette is closed.
