Nearly 3,000 customers of Xcel Energy in Eden Prairie lost power Wednesday morning when four of the utility's distribution lines were knocked out.

The outage occurred just before 9 a.m., said company spokesman Tom Hoen. Power was restored by early afternoon, he said.

The cause of the loss of power wasn't immediately known, but such failures usually occur when the lines are hit by a vehicle or an animal shorts them out, Hoen said.
