SEATTLE (AP) - North Seattle's Northgate Mall was closed after a power outage that disrupted service to nearly 4,000 customers.

The outage occurred on Saturday afternoon when Seattle City Light crews working on a high-voltage transmission line dropped wires onto distribution lines below.

Some traffic lights were not working and drivers were urged to be cautious.
