Update at 11:30 a.m.: DTE officials said all power was back to customers as off 10:50 a.m.
More than 5,000 DTE Energy customers in Washtenaw County were without power Sunday morning after a Pittsfield Township transformer fire, officials said.
The DTE Outage map showed a power outage that went from the Interstate 94 and U.S. 23 interchange south along the U.S. 23 corridor through Pittsfield Township and into York Township.
Pittsfield Township Fire Chief Sean Gleason confirmed the outage was the result of a transformer fire at Michigan Avenue and Morgan Road that took place about 9:30 a.m. Sunday.
Dispatchers told AnnArbor.com that firefighters had cleared the scene and DTE Energy crews have been notified.
DTE spokeswoman Erica Donerson said the outage came due to "animal interference." All power was restored by 10:50 a.m. Sunday, Donerson said.
