NV Energy says strong winds may have caused a power outage that affected about 7,500 customers in Sparks near Pyramid Way on Wednesday night.

A NV Energy representative says they believe the wind blew some trees into power lines and that may have caused them to spark a small fire.

Traffic lights along Pyramid Way were also impacted by the outage, causing traffic through the area to back up.
