Fire Department, Power Crews Work to Repair Broken Pole Tuesday Morning

Posted by wlpo on September 27, 2016

It doesn’t take a strong storm to knock out your power and keep it out for several hours.

The Utica Fire Department was called shortly after midnight Tuesday morning about power lines that were down near Interstate 80 and Route 6. Crews arrived to find 4 power wires down due to a broken pole and crossing in the area, according to an Ameren spokeswoman. A couple hundred people in Utica and La Salle reported not having power through the morning.

Crews worked into the morning to get the situation resolved and, according to Ameren, power was restored to everyone around 10:00 Tuesday morning.
