The Chattanooga Fire Department posted photos to Twitter showing a National boom truck crane was on its side with its massive boom stretched over the roof of one house and the top of the boom resting on a second roof.

The fire department said a tree-trimming company had been using the crane to remove a large log when the vehicle fell over.

Crews were summoned to remove the crane and ended up renting two larger cranes to lift the fallen equipment. Check out the recovery video here.

The road was reopened to traffic Friday night and firefighters placed tarps over the damaged roofs to protect the insides of the homes from the weather.
