Power restored to BRT-Jennings area after overnight blackout

Power has been restored to neighborhoods on the eastern side of town overnight after a blackout hit nearly 1,400 United Illuminating Customers late last night.

The outages apparently were caused by the explosion of a transformer at Black Rock Turnpike and Jennings Road.

As of 10:30 p.m. last night, UI was reporting that 1,386 Fairfield customers were without power, about 5.8 percent of those served by the utility in the town.

At 6 a.m. today, there are no remaining outages, according to UI's website.
