Minor plane delays after runway lights out at Burlington airport

BURLINGTON, Vt. The lights went out at the Burlington International Airport Sunday evening.

Officials say a weak point in a conduit caused runway lights to go out on Sunday night for approximately 40 minutes. Electricians were able to quickly repair the issue. Officials say the incident caused minor delays.

A similar incident last month prompted airport officials to divert incoming planes. That outage was linked to construction crews accidentally damaging a power line.
