Hundreds Lose Power in Fair Lawn Sunday

Hundreds of Fair Lawn residents lost power for up to 16 hours Sunday as a result of blown transformers, police said.

Public Service could not be reached for comment, but the utility's online outage maps estimated that between 501 and 2,000 customers throughout the borough were in the dark from just after midnight Saturday until mid-afternoon Sunday. The borough was restored to full power just after 4 p.m.

Lt. Bob Kneer said multiple transformer fires were to blame for the outages, including one at the corner of Lyncrest Avenue and Willow Street, but could not say what parts of town had been affected.
