Power outage in Schofield fixed, hampered by water and frozen ground

SCHOFIELD, Wis. (WSAW) - According to the Wisconsin Public Service Outage Map, power to more than 200 people in Schofield is back on after a problem with a buried line.

A representative told NewsChannel 7 that crews became aware of the problem Thursday afternoon.

As they worked to fix the issue, ponding and the frozen ground made it difficult.

They're unclear what caused the issue in the first place.
