GREENVILLE — About 2,500 customers were without power in the Greenville area Saturday morning.

According to Consumers Energy spokesman, Tim Pietryga, the outage was due to a raccoon that climbed into a substation on Peck Road.

According to Consumers, the outage occurred at 1:10 a.m. on Saturday and was restored at 3:44 a.m.

“That is the only major outage we have for that area on Saturday,” Pietryga said after asking about reports of outages Saturday night.
