ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A hot-air balloon that crashed into a power line caused a temporary outage in northwest Albuquerque on Sunday.

Police nobody was injured.

The crash caused an intersection to be closed for a short time while workers fixed the power line.

Police also reported another crash on Sunday morning, which marks the second day of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. There weren’t injuries in that crash either.

The week-long Balloon Fiesta draws tens of thousands of spectators and pilots from all over world.
