CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Power company Alliant Energy is investigating the cause of an overnight power outage that affected three Linn County communities in eastern Iowa.

Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports (https://bit.ly/Thu2zS ) that the outage lasted from about 12:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday, affecting 9,000 in parts of southeast Cedar Rapids and the communities of Ely and Bertram.

An Alliant spokesman says utility investigators are looking to see if an animal made its way into the Prairie Creek Subsation in Cedar Rapids and caused the outage.
