MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Part of a large tree fell on a house near the intersection of Maxine Street and Mallory Avenue Tuesday evening.

Family members said that the people living in the house moved just a few days earlier.

The tree caused significant damage to the house. Two men, who just moved in, had to move furniture and appliances out of the now uninhabitable home.

"They hear something happen on the roof," the residents' cousin Dennis Mendez said. "When they got out, they saw the tree on the top of the roof."

The men quickly ran out of the house. When they looked at their new home and felt very lucky they were not injured.

The Red Cross is helping the men out.  They will likely move back to their previous residence.

At this time, it's unclear why part of the tree fell.
