A power failure overnight left a shelter on South Canal Street in the dark and without heat.

The power went out about 4:30 a.m. and was back on about an hour later.

The Pacific Garden Mission helps the homeless who need shelter and safety from the extreme cold.

ComEd was called to help isolate the power issue. It turns out the power failure was caused by a blown fuse.
