JANESVILLE—A tree that fell on an Alliant Energy power line in the area of South Crosby Avenue and Rockport Road caused a power outage that impacted 265 customers on the city's southwest side shortly before 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, said Scott Reigstad, Alliant spokesman.

About half of the customers had their power restored shortly before 4 a.m. Everybody was back on line by 5:35 a.m., he said.

The area affected was north of Rockport Road, west of Arch Street, east of Crosby Avenue and south of Court Street, said Lt. Jimmy Holford, of the Janesville Police Department.
