(BEDFORD) - Nearly 2,700 customers of Duke Energy were without power on Saturday afternoon.

The power outage affected an area south of Bedford and into Mitchell.

Angeline Protogere with Duke Energy says a transmission line had failed for an unknown reason.

Protogere says workers rerouted the electricity from the Mitchell and Hartleyville sub-stations to try and track down the power break.

Electricity in the affected areas was out for about 30 minutes.
