The fire started Thursday evening, where it spread to the lawn of a vacant home on Morrison Street. The Vernon Fire Department extinguished the blaze, and they report no property damage.
The outage caused traffic delays, as lights were out on Route 30 and Route 31.
Eversource Energy says power was completely restored to residents shortly before 8 p.m.
