Power problems reported in Girard

Most power was restored within an hour, and all power was to be restored by Sunday night, though some residents said they still experienced flickering lights.
Firefighters were dispatched about 7:30 p.m. to Trinity Steel, 1170 N. State St., for a fire alarm, but found no fire. Flickering power problems are suspected in setting off the alarm, reports state.
