Vero boat fire causes temporary power outage

A boat fire in Vero Beach near the 17th Street Bridge caused a temporary power outage Tuesday.

Some electricity was turned off because the vessel was close to transmission lines, according to police.

It affected traffic lights near 17th St & Indian River Blvd. and 17th St & A1A.

Power has since been restored.

Police say the line across the river will be out during the investigation but it is not affecting any customers.

It's unclear if anyone on the boat was hurt.
