Downed line at Oro Fino Gulch causes brief power outage

HELENA – The winter weather is already causing some problems around Helena.

It appears that heavy snow-covered tree branches took out a power line on Oro Fino Gulch about an hour ago.

We’re working to get more details on what exactly happened, but the blocked road caused people to turn around or find a different route.

According to NorthWestern Energy, there’s a power outage to just over 200 customers in the area.

They estimate power will be back online around 11 p.m. on Tuesday.
