FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. (KSDK) – More than 1,700 Ameren customers are out of power in Fairview Heights Wednesday morning, according to an Ameren outage map.

The power outage stems from a blown transformer, and Ameren Illinois crews are working to repair it at a substation in East St. Louis, according to an Ameren spokesperson.
