Phx. power outage affects 1,055 customers, traffic lights, 3TV

PHOENIX -- More than 1,000 APS customers, including 3TV, were left without power for a time Tuesday morning.

Feeder to blame?

The outage affected customers between Missouri and Ocotillo, which is just north of Bethany Home, to the north and south, and Seventh Street to Seventh Avenue to the east and west.

Traffic lights in the affected area were also out.

Power first went out about 6:15 a.m. While it came back on for a time about 90 minutes later, it went out again a short time after that.

According to APS, a feeder that brings electricity from the substation to a transformer kept failing. That's why the power was off and on for most of the morning.

All power was restored about 11 a.m.
