Fallen tree knocks out power in Richland

About 3,000 homes in Richland were without electricity Thursday evening after a tree fell.

The tree fell down on the 1800 block of Howell Avenue about 6 p.m., taking out a main feeder line, said Ray Sieler, Richland's energy services director.

City crews had the outage fixed by 7:30 p.m., he said.
