Crews responded to a fire at an Owensboro substation Wednesday night.
OMU officials told 14 News that a protective breaker was on fire at the substation on Old Hartford Road and Kelly Lane, near the Trinity Hill Subdivision.
At one point, OMU's website reported around 2,100 power outages in that area. Officials say power should be restored in all customers.
The Owensboro Police Department said there were areas near the bypass affected as well and asked drivers to avoid those areas.
