Big Rig Pulls Down Power Lines In North Austin

Updated: Monday, August 4 2014, 03:51 PM CDT

Thousands of people are without power in North Austin after a semi-truck pulled down power lines and started a small grass fire.

It happened in the 10600 block of Middle Fiskville Road.

The Austin Fire Department says the fire started by the arching lines is out, but the road -- which runs parallel to I-35 -- has been shut down from Braker to Rundberg lanes.

About 2,700 customers are without power, according to Austin Energy. Service is expected to be restored by 5:15 p.m.
