6,300 people on the west side of Ann Arbor have been without power since about 6 p.m., according to a DTE spokesperson.

The outage came after a transformer caught fire at Maple Rd. and W. Liberty St.

DTE is now working to restore power to the area, Ann Arbor Police Lt. Angella Abrams said.

The fire took place at the Main Power Center.

John Austerberry, DTE Energy spokesperson, said that in addition to those without power from the transformer fire, 54,000 DTE customers have experienced outages today because of the windstorms.

There is also a downed power line on I-94 at Jackson Rd. and the road is closed in both directions.
