Equipment Failure Leaves Thousands Without Power in Wexford Co.

Thousands of people are without power Friday night.

Consumers Energy tells us there’s a pole fire on the north end of Cadillac near one of their substations.

Nearly 4,000 customers in Wexford County are in the dark.

Consumers says crews are headed to the area to figure out just how bad it is.

They say they hope to restore power by 11:30 Friday night but that could change, depending on the damage.
