Raccoon Blamed For Power Outage In South Lexington

Kentucky Utilities said a raccoon got into a substation and made contact with a fuse that knocked out power to an estimated 3,186 customers in south Lexington Wednesday evening.

KU said it shifted the load to other sources and that power would be restored gradually over the course of an hour.

The outage happened around 10:00 p.m.

The affected area stretched roughly along Nicholasville Road from Rosemont Garden to New Circle Road.

Lexington Police used inverters to power some of the affected traffic signals along the busy corridor.
