ALBANY -- The city experienced a spreading power outage Wednesday along Delaware Avenue.

Police said outages were first reported at about 9:45 p.m. at Delaware and Second avenues and a dispatcher said the darkness then spread down Second Avenue and west along Delaware Avenue to about Leonard Street, affecting a large section of the city's South End.

Niagara Mohawk Power Corp. workers searched late into the evening for the problem but officials were not available for comment on what caused the outage, the number of customers affected or how long it would take to fix. -- Bob Gardiner
