Posted by wlpo on November 28, 2016

If you are a Packer fan living in Peru, chances are you missed some of your team’s game on Monday night.

At around 7:45, a large chunk of the city lost power. Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says there was a fire on a main transmission line, causing the outage. He’s not sure what caused the fire.

Power was back on in the city after about a half hour. The Peru City Council continued their meeting in the dark.
