FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — A widespread power outage impacted thousands of customers on Fort Wayne’s southwest side Wednesday.
Indiana Michigan Power said a substation outage cut power to some 5,400 customers south of Illinois Road, west of Getz Road, and north of Engle Road.
I&M said the outage was due to an equipment issue in the substation.
The outages led to traffic back-ups at several intersections, including along heavily traveled Jefferson Boulevard.
Crews were able to restore power just before 2 p.m.
