GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Consumers Energy crews are looking into the cause of an early morning power outage in downtown Grand Rapids.
A utility spokesman says the outage hit at least 280 customers -- including office and apartment buildings -- around 4:45 a.m. Wednesday.
The outages are between U.S. 131 to the west, South Division Ave. to the east, Lyon Street to the north, and Cherry Street to the south.
Spokesman Roger Morgenstern says the problem is in Consumers' underground electrical network in downtown Grand Rapids, but workers have not determined the exact cause.
