Power restored for thousands in Arlington, Lakeland

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Thousands were without power in the Lakeland and Arlington area. MLGW has since restored power to all residents.

According to MLGW, a substation in the area was having problems, but they did not specify what those problems were.

This outage comes just days after an explosion at another substation in the area. That fire caused significant damage to the substation, and MLGW warned nearby residents that rolling blackouts could occur as crews work on repairs.

MLGW tweeted that power has since been restored.
