OAK CREEK — We Energies officials say they have fully restored roughly 2,500 customers that lost power on in the area of Oak Creek on Sunday evening, September 24th.

Officials say the power went out around 7:50 p.m. The boundaries of the outage were Drexel Ave on the north, Ryan Road on the south, S. 13th Street on the West and Nicholson Ave. on the east.

As for a cause? We Energies officials say it looks like tree growth that got into some wires may have caused a short — and then the outage.

The power was fully restored shortly before 10:00 p.m.
