BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) -- A giant boulder about 25 feet in diameter tumbled down a slope and crashed through a house in Billings on Saturday.

Police say no one was injured after the large piece of sandstone broke off about 1:20 p.m.

House owner Jon Lodge says he was inside one of the bedrooms about 15 minutes before it was demolished.

He tells the Billings Gazette that it doesn't look like the boulder can be removed from the home.

There was no estimate on damages to the rectangular wooden house.

Lodge says he and his wife have lived in the house for 14 years.
