SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A wave of storms swept through the Upstate on Friday leaving some damage behind, especially for one resident.

A representative for the City of Spartanburg Fire Department told FOX they received a call about a tree down on a residence on Syndor Drive. When they arrived, they met with a female resident who lived at the home.

The woman, who wished not to be named, told fire officials that she wasn't inside the home when the tree fell on it.

Fire department officials made sure the home's utilities were secured and a crew entered the residence to ensure there was no fire and secure the area.

Power was already out in the neighborhood due to the storms. A building official was also notified.

The woman will be staying with a friend for the time being. Her cat was in the home when the tree fell on top of it, and crews are working to get it safely out of the residence.
