About 120-thousand customers have been without power since about 6pm last night. At one point engineers were able to restore power to about half of those affected. But the lights went out again after they discovered the substation fire had not been contained.
Officials don't know what caused the fire or who long it will take before full power is restored.

A weekend D-U-I checkpoint in Pulaski turned up something other than alcohol.
State police arrested 26-year-old Packis Sumter of Radford yesterday, after discovering more than 300-grams of cocaine and about an ounce of marijuana in his car. Officers say they searched Sumter's car near that same checkpoint the night before, but did not find anything. Police believe Sumter may have thrown the drugs out of the car, and came back to the area to look for them.
