Detroit's Channel 7 WXYZ knocked off air due to power outage

The Detroit TV news station Channel 7 WXYZ is off air this morning due to a power outage.

Detroit’s WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) is back on air after a power outage kept the station off the airwaves for about three hours, according to a news article on the station's website.

WXYZ reported the outage on its Facebook page this morning at 9:18 a.m.

The post stated that the station’s “Edison box” blew up twice this morning, and a WXYZ  story on the station's website that "water got into station equipment which caused the outage and fuses to malfunction."

“The generators at the station working fine, but because the Edison box acts as just like your home fuse box, we can't get the power from the generators to the station. It's as if your home's fuse box blew up,” WXYZ said in the Facebook post at the time of the outage.

DTE Energy spokeswoman Amanda Knaebel said in an email that the outage was caused by issues with WXYZ's "internal electrical equipment, not DTE equipment."

She said crews were able to work with the station to make necessary repairs, and that no other customers were affected.
