Power outage on campus

TEMPE -- Tempe High School was closed Monday due to a power line that caught fire and burned across the street from the school, causing the power to go out on campus.

According to school officials, students had already started arriving at the school. Buses were going to return to pick up students who normally ride the bus to and from school.

A spokesman for the district said the decision was made to close the school, which is located at Mill Avenue and Broadway Road, for the day because repairs on the power line were expected to take several hours.
