The Public Service Company of Oklahoma said at the height of the outage more than 2,400 customers were without power on Thursday night because of a power line that caught fire.

Homes between 35th and 45th from Lewis to Riverside lost power around 9:45 p.m. PSO toldFOX23 that a power line fell onto another power line causing a fire.

Within an hour, about half of the outages had been restored. Crews worked to restore power in the area by 11p.m.

AEP had six years since the Ice Storm to bury lines, even raised rates to pay for it. How many got done?
