WICHITA, Kan. — A Wichita elementary school was without power for a short time after a problem with an electrical line and a fire.
It happened around 1:30 Monday afternoon near Hadley Middle School and the former Bryant Elementary School that now houses College Hill students. That's on 9th near West Street.
According to the school district, a problem with a transformer or line on a nearby power pole caused power to go out at the elementary school. A few minutes later, firefighters were responding to a grass fire in the area.
The fire was quickly extinguished, but burned part of the elementary school's playground.
Westar reports all outages in the area have been restored.
