CLEARFIELD -- Three circuits at a Clearfield substation serving 4,000 customers, including the Freeport Center, lost power early Thursday for just over an hour, resulting in workers at the industrial park being sent home.

The circuits went out at 8:34 a.m. at a substation located at 610 S. 1000 West in Clearfield, Rocky Mountain Power spokesman Dave Eskelsen said.

Repair crews responded and power was restored at 9:38 a.m., he said.

The cause for the power outage is not known at this time, Eskelsen said. But it did originate in the Clearfield substation, he said.

Attempts to reach the Freeport Center offices were unsuccessful.

There is roughly 7,000 people employed at the industrial park.
