Kapuskasing was once again left in the dark for a short period of time.

The first power outage in September marks the fourth outage of the past six weeks in Kapuskasing, with the most recent lasting all of 20 minutes from 11:35am to 11:55am today.

A Northern Ontario Wires spokesperson says a blown fuse tripped up their service from Hydro One, which is why the outage took place and also lasted such a short period of time.

The spokesperson also says the outage had an effect on all Northern Ontario Wires customers across all of Northern Ontario.

Northern Ontario Wires wants to apologize for the inconvenience.
