INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) — A hot air balloon brushed a power line and caused an outage at the National Balloon Classic near Indianola.

An event official, Bill Clemons, says the balloon was on the ground Tuesday night when it touched the wire and then draped over the wire. No injuries have been reported.

The event website says the 2014 National Balloon Classic features almost 100 hot air balloons from across the country. The event is scheduled to end Saturday.

Indianola is 18 miles south of Des Moines.
