Power restored to nearly 900 Macon customers

Hundreds of people living in west Macon lost electricity Monday morning.

A Georgia Power transformer at the Mill Irons substation blew about 6:15 a.m., which knocked out electrical service for neighborhoods near Anthony Road, Mercer University Drive and Edna Place, Georgia Power spokeswoman Carol Boatright said.

More than 880 residents and businesses lost electricity at the height of the outage.

Power was restored within two hours, Boatright said.

Public safety officers stayed busy investigating fire and burglar alarms going off during the disruption in power.
