Lights go out in Mendota after tree-service problem

Tamara Abbey
Mendota Bureau Chief

MENDOTA - The lights went out in part of Mendota Wednesday when a tree limb came into contact with a power line near Eighth Street at Sixth Avenue just after 4 p.m.

Carl Ambler, superintendent of the city's streets and parks department, said the tree was being cut by Duffy's Tree Service, a company which received a city business license on March 17.

ComED reports the outage affected 697 customers in Mendota, including the police and fire stations and downtown businesses. Most of the power was restored by 6:15 p.m. with some customers in the immediate area restored by 12:15 a.m. Thursday.
