HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Phone service has been disrupted and power is out to a portion of a school in Hartford Thursday afternoon.

Power is out in the main office, gym and one classroom at the Burr School on Wethersfield Avenue.

The power outage started around 10:30 a.m. after an issue with an underground piece of equipment, Connecticut Light and Power officials said. The issue is expected to be fixed sometime Thursday evening. 

The CL&P website is reporting 20 customers are without power in Hartford.

The outage caused after-school activities at the Burr School to be canceled for Thursday.

The Burr School serves kindergarten through eighth grade.
