Power restored to thousands following substation fire

NEW YORK (AP) Power has been restored to nearly all of the customers who were left in the dark following a fire at a substation in upstate New York.

NYSEG says nearly 60,000 people lost power Thursday night.

The bulk of the outages were in Putnam County, where more than 35,000 customers lost power. Another 14,000 customers were without power in Westchester County. Dutchess County had more than 9,000 without power.

The fire broke out at a substation in Carmel, which affected other substations.

A spokesman for the utility says they conducted switching operations to bypass the substations.
