The Daily Star

---- — Oneonta Fire Department crews had about five calls Saturday after a power surge and “brownout” Saturday, officials said.

The incidents were in the area of Academy Street, Watkins Avenue and Cliff Street.

The calls pertained to problems with appliances that were running at the the time of the surge, which caused over-heating and “shorting out,” fire officials said. No injuries were reported.
