The Haletown Volunteer Fire Department was called-out to assist with a fallen tree blocking the the 1900 block of US-41 last night.

The call came in just after 9pm CDT.

Upon arrival, firefighters discovered that a large hornet nest was still attached to the tree and require removal before the tree could be safely cleared by Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) workers.

Fortunately for the firefighters, no one was injured and no stings occurred.

Officials say the nest was safely relocated.
