Duke Energy officials said the outage started around 7:45 a.m. on West Gate City Boulevard after an equipment malfunction caused a pole to catch fire. The outage was not related to a traffic crash or weather.

Drivers are asked to use caution on Gate City Boulevard between Romaine Street and West Florida Street because power is out in the area.
