LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power says it’s restored service to 29,000 people who were left without electricity after a fire.

The DWP tells City News Service that a circuit breaker failed and caused a small fire at a power receiving station shortly after 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The fire was out by the time firefighters arrive but it shut down two power-distributing stations. The areas most affected were Westwood and Pacific Palisades.

The outage lasted about two hours and caused some traffic lights to malfunction, jamming some intersections.
