SEATTLE Seattle City Light crews restored power to most of the 7,100 customers affected by an outage in Burien and unincorporated King County by 6:15 p.m. today. Service was expected to be restored for the remaining 200 customers by midnight.

The cause of the outage remains under investigation. A power line did come down, starting a fire in a wooded utility right of way south of S 96th Street and west of Des Moines Memorial Drive.

Seattle City Light deenergized the power lines to allow firefighters to put out the blaze. City Light crews were dispatched to restore service once the fire was extinguished.

The general boundaries of the remaining outage are SW Barton Street on the North, SW 98th Street on the South, West Marginal Way S on the East and 4th Ave. SW on the West.
