Many residents of Bells Flats hit the hay last night with no electricity, though it was restored before they woke up this morning.
According to the Kodiak Electric Association, a faulty insulator caused a short which cut off power to the Flats, Middle Bay, Chiniak and Pasagshak.
KEA linemen worked through the wee hours to find the problem and had the damaged equipment replaced by 2:14 this morning.
