The Grand Forks Police station lost power in the early morning hours today, Lt. Grant Schiller said.

It seems that a surge in the power line tripped the circuit breaker, causing the outage. Power was out for about an hour, Schiller said.

The station's phones and its emergency dispatch center did not go down.

"We were still able to respond to calls, but our building was certainly dark," Schiller said.

The station's generator kicked in when power went out, but for some reason, energy was not getting to the building.

Xcel Energy workers and the station's maintenance staff responded to fix the problem, Schiller said.
