(KUTV) -- Live power lines closed Interstate 15 in both directions Sunday night.

Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Michael Gordon told 2News that live power lines fell down on I-15 near 9500 South.

The fallen power line sparked a small brush fire in the area. At least 3,400 people in the area also lost power due to the fallen lines.

Northbound and southbound lanes closed while officials worked to clear the area. Traffic was diverted onto Interstate 215.

All lanes reopened at approximately 8:35 p.m. Power should be restored at 11 p.m.

This is a developing story.
