DENVER - More than 4,000 Xcel Energy customers were in the dark Thursday evening.

Xcel Energy said the outage occurred around 8:45 p.m. in the Capitol Hill area near downtown Denver.

The company's website puts the total number of customers affected at 4,535.

Xcel says the outage was caused by a lock out, where the system shuts itself off if it suspects a problem on the line.

Power was expected to be restored before midnight.
