(Fort Wayne) - Several blocks on the city's northeast side lost electricity just after 11 P.M. Tuesday night. A pole fire may have been the cause. Police say homes north of State Blvd. and east of Hobson Road are affected.

The outage has also affected a few traffic lights in that area. They are believed to be at the intersections of Coliseum Blvd. and Hobson Road, Hobson Road and Trier Road and St. Joe Road and Stellhorn Road.

Most of the power was restored about an hour and a half after it went out.
