Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Crews with NV Energy have restored power to Las Vegas residents affected by a power outage.
Power was fully restored to all customers just before 9 p.m. Saturday evening.
The outage happened around 1 p.m. in the area of Sloan Lane and Carey Avenue, between Nellis and Hollywood Boulevards.
NV Energy told Action News a car struck a fuse cabinet, causing the outage.
About 1,200 customers in that area were without power.
