The outage happened after a power pole in the area of Staley and James roads, south of Lyons, was damaged.
Consumers spokesman Brian Wheeler told 24 Hour News 8 that a cross-arm on the power pole was burned off. It wasn’t immediately clear how, though Wheeler suggested lightning may have been the cause.
