Burning Pole Causes Power Outage

UPDATE: The power pole was repaired successfully and crews were able to restore power just before noon.


Several hundred residents of National Mine and Palmer in western Marquette County are without power this morning.

Integrys Energy Group says that crews from UPPCO are on site at a burning pole.

The remaining repairs to the pole will cause an outage for about 600 customers in National Mine and Palmer.

Integrys is expecting everyone to have power restored by 1:30 to 2 this afternoon, and they say they’ll release more information if anything changes.
