SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- An apparent cut in Qwest's fiber optic line left residents in Heber and Park City without 911 emergency service for about four hours on Wednesday.

Vince Hancock, spokesman for Qwest Communications, said the outage began around 11 a.m. when a landscaping company's heavy equipment hit an underground line.

Long distance service for Heber and Park City was out as well. Hancock said he expected those services to be restored by Wednesday evening.
