9:05 a.m.Update:A partial power outage has some of the lights and fare gates out on the mezzanine level of the Columbia Heights Metro station, but officials said at 9 a.m. the problem should be resolved in 15 to 20 minutes.

It's unclear what caused the outage, which only affected some lights and the fare gates on one side of the station, said Steven Taubenkibel, a Metro spokesman. He said train operations were not affected, and repair crews were on their way to the station to fix the problem.

No other station had power outages Wednesday morning, Taubenkibel said.
