Technical Failure Causes Flash, Area Power Outage

Posted: Updated:

NV Energy says a tripped transmission line caused a temporary power outage across a portion of Reno and Sparks on Tuesday night.

NV Energy says a technical problem on a main line near Mill Street and Edison caused the outage around 7:15pm, then reset itself, restoring power a few moments later.

Some people on our Facebook page reported they saw a bright flash of light across the area before it went dark.
