DENVER — Thousands of Comcast customers lost service Tuesday morning after a fiber line near Santa Fe Drive and Evans Avenue was damaged, a spokesperson for Comast said.

About 11,000 customers were affected, Alison Busse said.

She said the line was damaged just before 5 a.m. and that they suspect someone cut the line, thinking it was copper. She said the company reported the incident to the Denver Police Department.

Service was restored to all customers by about  4 p.m., Busse said.
