According to HEA spokesman Joe Gallagher, power went out at 8:24 p.m. after a raven got into the Marathon substation, located near Walmart, and landed on a voltage regulator, tripping the substation and damaging the regulator.

HEA crews worked to reroute power through the Beaver Creek substation. Power was fully restored by 10:25 p.m.

The affected area, between Tinker Lane and Forest Drive, includes about 2,500 homes and businesses.
