SCOTT CITY, MO (KFVS) - About 10-15 homes in Scott City lost power for a short time Monday after a tractor pulled a power line down in town.

A tractor caught one of the power lines, drug it, broke a post and damaged another one, according to a Scott City police officer.

It happened about 10 a.m. Monday near the railroad tracks on Main Street.  Route N to the railroad tracks was shut down until crews fixed the line.
