A Monday afternoon storm moving through Fayette County caused structural damage to a home in Peachtree City, along with a number of trees downed on the city’s south side. There were no storm-related injuries reported in the county.

Peachtree City Fire Rescue spokesman Ron Mundy said the residence on Wood Ridge off South Peachtree Parkway sustained significant structural damage when a large pine tree fell on the home. The house is being checked for structural integrity, Mundy said.
