UPDATE: Transformer fire knocks out power for some in Duncan

DUNCAN, Ok (KSWO) – A fire at a power substation in Duncan Tuesday morning left more than 1,000 people without power.

Immediately after the fire, PSO said 1,033 people were out of power but as of about 1 p.m. Tuesday power had been restored to all residents.

PSO said the fire was started simply because of an equipment failure as a breaker at the substation malfunctioned, causing a few of the transformers to catch fire. The electricity to those transformers was turned off and the fire was quickly put out. The Duncan Fire Department was called to the scene to ensure the fire didn't spread but PSO handled the job of extinguishing the fire due to it being electrical in nature.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
