A downed power line north of Lewis Sunday left residents of the community without power for a little more than five-hours. The downed line caused a small ditch fire just north of Highway 6, near County Road M-56.

The power was knocked out at around 3-p.m.. Crews from Mid-American Energy were on the scene and able to restore service to the utility’s customers, at around 8:00 p.m.
