By Chelsea Hoedl

An equipment problem caused about 2,000 residents in southeast Ann Arbor and Pittsfield Township to lose power around 9 a.m. Thursday.

The center of the outage area is located at East Ellsworth Road and Stone School Road.

According to DTE Energy spokesperson Alejandro Bodipo-Memba, as of 10:30 a.m. two-thirds of those who had lost power were back up. He said DTE expects everyone in the area to have restored power within the next 45 minutes.
