WENATCHEE — Power’s back up to most all homes and businesses along a portion of busy North Wenatchee Avenue after a food-delivery truck snagged a transmission line and pulled down a pole.
The outage, which was reported at about 11:20 a.m., affected homes and businesses between Fifth and Ninths streets, including The Wenatchee World’s printing plant on Ninth Street, Kimberlee Craig, Chelan County PUD spokeswoman said. The downed line also sparked a small fire.
About 125 mostly commercial customers were affected by the outage, Craig said.
The incident happened in the alley behind Joe’s Log Cabin restaurant and bar, Craig said. Crews restored power shortly afterward to some businesses.
Power went out at The World’s printing plant just as today’s paper was about to be printed, Joe Pitt, general manager for World Publishing said.
Power was restored to most customers by around noon.
