BLOOMFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

A power line that was knocked down during a severe storm Saturday sparked a small fire in Bloomfield.

It happened near the Copaco Shopping Center on Cottage Grove Road.

Officials said several homes and businesses were without power, while crews worked to repair the lines.

As of Sunday morning, police said the road was reopened and power was restored to affected residents in the area.

Officials are still investigating whether lightning may have caused the line to fall.
