(KSL News) -- A power line pole caught fire this afternoon at 4500 South and 500 East, leaving more than 2200 people without power for about ten minutes.

Officials say the fire was weather-related, caused by today's storm, and cut power to main lines going to the pole.

Utah Power says more than 200 customers are still out, but they expect to have the pole replaced by tonight and the power back on.
