YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Yuma Fire Department is actively responding to reports of a power line down right across the street from our newsroom on 4th Avenue and West 20th Street.

Affected areas are between 13th Street to 24th Street and 8th Ave to Maple Avenue, according to APS.

It expects the power to be restored by 11:30 a.m.
