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 (http://bit.ly/13gZYcK ) 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.
