Burbank Fire Department responded to the 1100 block of Reese Place for a report of power lines arching, as a tree at the address brushed across a electrical feeder line leaving close to 500 homes and business in the area without power and completely dark.

Burbank Police responded to a couple of Burglary Alarms caused by the outage and officers setup temporary stop signs at key intersections such as Victory and Burbank, Reese and Burbank, with officers patrolling the dark neighborhoods.

Burbank Water & Power responded to the area and crews trimmed the trees and restored power within a couple of hours.

So if your alarm clock didn’t go off on time, that’s the reason, and make sure you show this to your boss for proof!

Good time to get a battery backup alarm clock.
