Crews with City Utlities worked quickly to repair power lines after a construction worker hit some power lines while working on the roof of the Flying J Truck Stop near Chestnut and Haseltine Road in Springfield.

It knocked out power around Chestnut Expressway and I-44 in Springfield.

City Utilities says around 9:25, a roofing contractor working in that area had a lift catch fire after it hit some power lines.

Power was restored after 11 a.m.

Nobody was hurt.

Go Patrol spotters reported traffic lights blacked out starting at the Flying J truck stop and stretching all the way past the airport on Highway 266.

At one point, more than 200 customers were without power.
