Transformer fire knocks out power to multiple businesses in Sidney

SIDNEY, Neb. - The City of Sidney electrical department had quite the wake up call on Thursday morning, November 9, as just past 8:00am they were alerted to a power outage on the hill in Sidney, just north of Interstate 80.

A faulty transformer at the Days Inn on Silverberg Drive caught fire and caused a power outage for all businesses on the east side of NE-17J Link. Some of the businesses affected include Walmart, Runza, Bomgaars, etc. The fire was contained quickly and was able to be put out by fire extinguishers on site.

The electrical department worked through the morning on restoring power to the area, and all businesses, except for the Days Inn, had power back between 12:30-1:00. Electricians were able to restore power to the hotel around 3:00 Thursday afternoon.
