NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A burning utility pole left thousands of customers without power and caused some traffic problems in south Nashville Thursday morning.

The outage affected many south Nashville residents along Antioch Pike.

The fire was reported just before 4 a.m. on Antioch Pike at Candy Lane, just off Harding Place near Interstate 24.

The Fire Department and Nashville Electric Service waited for the fire to go out before working to fix the pole.

Officials with NES told Nashville's News 2 they had to drop some lines to repair the pole after the fire. 1,100 people were without power at one point. Approximately 100 customers were still without power as of 6 a.m.

It was not immediately known how the fire got started.
