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.

    Are there residents and businesses that are staying comfortable with a low use of power? We all could benefit with reports on what they are doing.

    Trees and bushes on the South and Southwest side to generally reduce solar heating and anwings and closed curtains and blinds to reduce solar heating through windows?

    Celing and floor fans to make whatever the temperature is fell cooler?

    Other things?
