Nearly 3,000 Kentucky Utilities customers lost power for a little less than an hour Tuesday evening.

"We had a breaker switch go bad in one of Campbellsville's substations," said Cliff Feltham, KU's statewide media relations manager. "2,750 customers were affected. They were off for a bit less than an hour."

Feltham said the customer load was switched to other substations so that crews could repair the switch on Wednesday.

"We don't think the outage had anything to do with the storms of recent weeks," Feltham said. "It was just mechanical failure, which happens to us periodically."
