A power outage left more than 4,000 APS customers in downtown Phoenix without electricity Monday morning, according to the utility company.

A service interruption to a major power line was said to have caused the outage just before 9 a.m.

Police at the scene said a semitruck that was headed south on Fillmore Street turned into an alley near Third Avenue and caught an overhead power line, snapping it and causing low- and high-voltage lines to spark.

The outage was affecting customers from Palm Lane to Washington Street and 19th Avenue to Fifth Street.

APS estimated on its website that power would be restored by 1 p.m.
