VENTURA — Traffic lights were knocked out, houses left in the dark and businesses closed down after a power outage cut off electricity to almost 2,000 customers Monday evening, according to officials with Southern California Edison.

The outage, which began at 7:02 p.m., affected commercial and residential electricity customers in the area from Poli Street to Market Street, Callens Road to Chrisman Avenue, according to Edison spokesman Paul Klein.
