Power Line Break Starts Fire, Causes Power Outage

Sioux Falls, SD

A break in a power line started a small fire in central Sioux Falls.

Fire crews were called to a home on South Lake Avenue near 16th Street when a fire was reported in some bushes.

At this point, there's no word on what caused line break.  Officials say it is something they usually only see in the winter with ice.

The break did affect power in the area.  The Xcel Energy website had more than 900 customers without power shortly after the fire was reported.
