Broken treetop hanging on wire gets holiday decor

INDIAN ISLAND, Wash. (AP) — Some Washington state residents are getting in the holiday spirit by decorating a Douglas fir that toppled onto an unused utility line in a recent windstorm and looks like an upside-down Christmas tree.

The 12-foot top of the tree that snapped off now dangles on the line on Indian Island, about 40 miles northwest of Seattle across Puget Sound.

The Peninsula Daily News reports ( ) that local residents decked out the tree with garlands, ribbons, ornaments and a sign that says, "Santa, I want it all!"

A utility agency says the tree doesn't pose an immediate electrical hazard but advises residents to stay away.
