Wake Forest, N.C. — Power has been restored to about 3,250 customers in Wake Forest following an outage Monday morning.
Town spokesman Bill Crabtree said in a statement that the outage happened when two blown fuses caused a circuit breaker to activate.
The northwest section of Wake Forest, including several neighborhoods along Durham Road and most of downtown, was without power from about 11:30 a.m. to 12:50 p.m.
The eastern portion of Stadium Drive and west of South Main Street, as well as all of North Main Street, the East End Area, downtown Wake Forest and Wait Avenue were affected, Crabtree said.
The outage also disrupted telephone service.
