MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Most of the power in Brooklyn has been restored just after noon Sunday after thousands of customers were experiencing power outages, Alliant Energy said.

Alliant Energy officials said all of the power has been restored, except the Dollar General, that started the original problem.

Officials said they responded to reports of smoke at a Dollar General on Douglas Dr., just before 10 a.m.

Dispatch said first responders found that a transformer, a device that transfers energy from one circuit into another, had gone bad.

Just under 2,000 residents had reported energy issues in the area, according to the Alliant Energy map.

Alliant Energy is currently working to resolve the issues at the Dollar General.
