Electricity service suddenly ceased Monday night in the fairgrounds section of Urbana.
The Champaign County Fair closed early on a night when the truck and tractor pull normally keeps things bright and noisy late into the evening.
Approximately 1,600 customers were without power as of 9:45 p.m. This corresponds with an outage map available through Dayton Power & Light’s website.
The cause of the outage was not immediately known. Power was restored just after 10 p.m. to parts of the outage area.
