Out of service: Visitors and employees found the doors locked and the Spokane County Public Safety Building closed after a power outage Tuesday. The outage in west and north Spokane was traced to a contractor who struck an overhead utility line. Avista Utilities reported that 6,200 customers were affected by the outage about 1:23 p.m., including the Spokane County Court House campus, jail and Public Safety Building. Power was restored at 2 p.m. Traffic lights along arterials, including Monroe, Maple and Ash streets, were darkened by the outage. Also affected were the Spokane Transit Authority’s shop and office.
