Power was restored by 9 a.m. to more than 6,000 people in Greenville after an animal caused a problem at a substation.

According to Rob Beeler, DP&L Customer Business Manager, the power outages were caused by an event around 2 a.m with an animal at one of their substations in Greenville on Sebring Warner Road that serves many of their customers.

The animal was a raccoon, according to The Early Bird, a weekly newspaper in Greenville. The newspaper reports workers who insert advertisements had to work by flashlights and a truck's headlights because of the outage Sunday morning.
