power outage

About 1,600 customers may be without power through the night in Lakewood

Damage from a pole fire that caused an outage in the Lakewood area means that about 1,600 customers may not have power tonight.

Tacoma Power crews are working to restore service to as many people as possible, but must replace the pole and equipment that burned. It will take the longest to restore service to people who live in 70th Street SW to 87th Street SW and 63rd Avenue SW to Phillips Road SW. 

Crews will work through the night to fix the damage.
