GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- A young girl is being treated for injuries after being struck by a falling tree branch Friday afternoon. 

Firefighters were initially called to a home near the intersection of Dale Street NE and Center Avenue NE this morning on a report of power line damage due to a tree that had fallen.  While they were taking care of that initial damage, another branch fell at a nearby home. That second branch struck a seven-year-old girl.

The little girl's injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
