Update: Power returned to 4,000 in northwest R.I.
Power has been returned to about 4,000 customers in the northwest part of the state after a morning blackout.
David Graves, spokesman for National Grid, says a burned wire near the Scituate substation caused the outage just before 7 a.m. to residents in Foster, Glocester and Scituate.
By about 7:40 power was restored to about 3,200 customers. The remaining customers were able to turn the lights back on by 9:05.
The company is still looking into the cause of the outage.
Elementary and regional schools in Foster and Gloucester were closed because of the outage, and the the schedule at North Foster Day Care has been delayed.
