UPDATE A line of heavy thunderstorms moved through Westport tonight, downing trees and power lines and causing isolated flooding.
A lightning strike on the exterior of a home on Hermit Lane caused a small fire in a garage, which was quickly extinguished, fire officials said.
Connecticut Light and Power Company said 1,035 Westport customers were without power at 8:50 p.m. At 10:35 p.m. the number was 195.
A portion of the downtown area near St. John Place and Myrtle Avenue was among those in the dark, according to police reports.
