WILLMAR -- A power outage Tuesday in Willmar was caused by a generator failure during some routine maintenance.

Power was restored at 10:20 a.m. to the downtown area and the north side of town, according to Wes Hompe with the Willmar Municipal Utilities.

During a scheduled maintenance project, "a piece of equipment failed that we were depending on," Hompe said.

Hompe estimated that power was out for less than an hour.
