Blown Fuses Cause Power Outage in City

Much of the City of Memphis was out of electricity Sunday morning for approximately one hour.

Superintendent Mike Ahland stated that the city’s main 7200 line was out for roughly 60 minutes because of a pair of blown fuses at the main substation on the Northeast Missouri Electric Power Cooperative line that is used to transfer the city’s electricity into the municipal system.

Ahland stated the city electric department made the repairs at the site, which is located west of the light plant.

The 7200 line services approximately 75 percent of the city.
