Widespread Power Outage in North Arlington

On a hot and sticky Thursday evening, more than 4,100 Dominion customers are without power in North Arlington. A blown transformer is believed to be the source of the outage.

The transformer blew just after 5:00 this afternoon and sparked a small grass fire, which was promptly extinguished.

Police are reporting that numerous traffic lights are dark in the area of Yorktown High School.

Dominion estimates that power will be restored around 9:00 tonight.
