The more than 4,800 customers who reported losing electric service at about 3:41 p.m. were switched to other circuits, he said. Everyone affected had their power restored sometime between 5 and 5:30 p.m.

Customers affected were in some areas of Harrison Twp. and Huber Heights.

Beeler said the trouble appears to have started in an area off Needmore Road, not far from Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway.
