Over 3,500 homes and businesses in Crozet were without power for a short time on Monday.

A pole and some grass connected to a power line caught on fire.
Dominion Power said the fire started when a piece of their equipment failed.

The fire began next to an electrical substation around 5 o'clock and the power outage lasted roughly an hour.
