Firefighters in Minden say Johnson Lane from Wildhorse Drive to Heybourne Road should be re-opened around 8am Thursday after high winds caused a power poll to catch fire overnight.

According to authorities the fire started after a transmission line arced just before 4am.  Firefighters quickly put out the flames but had to close the road.

At least 1,000 customers lost power temporarily and NV Energy crews had to be brought in to restore it.
