FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI) -- Several people in Frankfort were impacted by a widespread power outage Thursday afternoon.

Frankfort Municipal Utilities said more than 9,000 of their customers were affected.

The problem started with an issue at a Duke Energy substation. That was fixed around 6 p.m., but at the time Duke still wasn't sure what caused the outage in the first place.

In all, the substation was down for about three and a half hours.
