An equipment failure beneath Moraine Street caused power outages in the surrounding area Monday night into Tuesday.

Rhiannon D’Angelo of the utility Eversource said the problem took place about 9 p.m. Monday. At its peak, more than 350 customers lost power, she said. Half of those had power restored within two hours.

Resident Alex Carson Tweeted, “smells like straight up bbq over here.”
