An electrical outage that impacted certain Board of Public Utilities' substations led to an outage Saturday night through early Sunday morning in the Jamestown area.  BPU Spokeswoman Becky Robbins says Electric Division employees were called out about 11:30 p.m., and found a problem at the Carlson Generating Station triggered the outage.  Robbins says linemen and supervisors re-routed electricity to get power back to customers.   She says power was restored by shortly before 2:30 this morning.
