The traffic lights at the intersection of Fairfax Drive and North Stafford Drive are dark due to a small power outage in the area.

About 100 Dominion customers are affected by the outage. The company expects to get the power back on by 4:00 this afternoon.

Police are placing portable stop signs on the road to remind drivers to treat the intersection as a four-way stop.

Earlier this morning, fire fighters responded to the adjacent Central United Methodist Church for a report of smoke in the boiler room, likely a result of the power outage.

    Dominion was working on what looked like a major project at that intersection on Monday and through the week.

    I’m going to assume its related.

    Yeah, the project was some major electrical work at the alta vista condo. Not sure why that would affect power outside the building, but maybe someone cut the wrong cord…
