Stores in the Banksville Plaza in Pittsburgh's Banksville section were forced to close on Monday evening after the shopping center lost electricity.

The plaza in the 3100 block of Banksville Road lost power after a piece of equipment malfunctioned and caused the utility pole on which it was attached to catch fire, said Joe Vallarian, a spokesman for Duquesne Light Co..

No injuries were reported.

Utility crews were dispatched to replace the burned pole and damaged transformer, Vallarian said.

Service is expected to be restored by 4 a.m. on Tuesday, he said.
