BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) - More than 14,000 homes and businesses in Bloomington briefly lost power during a morning power outage.

A spokeswoman for Ameren Illinois tells The (Bloomington) Pantagraph (https://bit.ly/1om5P9y ) that a malfunctioning device at a substation is to blame for Tuesday’s blackout.

The homes and businesses in Bloomington and nearby Normal went dark around 9:30 a.m., but the lights were back on by 10:40 a.m.

Officials say the outage affected both Ameren and Corn Belt Energy customers.
