CLAYTON, New York (WWNY) - Thousands were without power in Northern Jefferson County Sunday evening.

National Grid officials say about 9,300 people are without power in several locations throughout Northern Jefferson County.

Jefferson County Dispatch says the call was in response to a reported explosion around 7:10 PM.

Clayton Fire officials say they responded to something going wrong at the sub-station on State Route 12 between Clayton and Fisher’s Landing, however they could not confirm what it was, and that National Grid is now handling it.

The power company said there was no timetable yet for restoration,, but it appears most had power back on before 11 PM.
