All members of a Ridgewood family with young children escaped injury when a large tree came crashing through the roof of their single family home on Wednesday night.  The incident occurred in the 400 block of Farview Street between 11:30 and 11:45 PM.  Ridgewood Police and Ridgewood Fire Department personnel rushed to the scene in response to a 911 telephone call from a concerned neighbor who witnessed the incident.  Electric service to the home was severed when the tree fell, but a troubleshooter from PSE&G responded to the scene in a bucket truck, and restored power within 60 minutes.  Damage to the home appeared moderate; the family was permitted to remain inside as firefighters checked the structure to ensure there were no natural gas leaks or broken pipes.  A fire official on the scene identified the tree as one belonging to the Village of Ridgewood; a Village tree crew was expected to remove the tree on Thursday morning.  All fire and police units cleared the scene as of 12:45 AM on Thursday.
