At least two apartment buildings and one shop lost power this afternoon near the intersection of Madison and Roosevelt avenues. The traffic light at Madison and Lincoln avenues is also out and is backing up traffic.
The power outage at Madison and Roosevelt occurred at 1:27 p.m. and is likely related an electric pole on the corner that caught fire around that time. Officials from the City of Lakewood and The Illuminating Company responded to the call. Power is expected to return later today.
The area is now marked off with tape.
