Original Story, 2 p.m.
The portion of Grasmere Avenue between Kings Highway and Kings Highway Cutoff -- juxtaposed to the Kings Crossing Shopping Plaza -- is closed due to an initial report of downed wires.
Traffic lights along that portion of Grasmere Avenue are out. A United Illuminating crew is on scene, working on the lights.
Fairfield fire personnel reported on the scanner that wires had fallen on a car with an occupant inside, but that scene appears to have been cleared.
According to the fire department via scanner, fuses on the pole have blown, expanding the area of power outage. There are currently 994 Fairfield customers without power, according to UI.
According to its website, UI expects to restore power to the area around 5 p.m.
