UPDATE: Power restored to all customers affected by Midtown outage
The outage has been resolved and power has been restored to all customers, according to ML&P. Any ML&P customers still without power can call 279-7671.
A power outage in Midtown is affecting about 200 customers near Arctic Boulevard, Fireweed Lane, Northern Lights Boulevard and Blueberry Road, according to Municipal Light and Power.
According to ML&P spokeswoman Julie Harris, the outage began just before 3 p.m. when emergency crews had to respond to an overhead powerline that was about to come down at the corner of Arctic and Fireweed.
“Crews are working as quickly as is safe to do so,” Harris told Channel 2. The outage is expected to be resolved within the hour.
