ISHPEMING — A power line was brought down on Thursday in Downtown Ishpeming.
An XPO Logistics semi–truck was attempting to turn around in an empty lot when it got caught on low hanging telecommunication cables.
The lot is located on E. Division St. in between S. 4th St. and Jasper St.
According to the Ishpeming Fire Department and Upper Peninsula Power Company (UPPCO), the power should be restored this evening between 8:00 and 10:00 this evening.
An UPPCO worker claimed that the power line being down will affect people who live on the east side of St. John’s church.
