BATON ROUGE - Thousands are without power after a reported equipment failure in the capital area Friday.

Demco reports just over 3,000 of its customers in East Baton Rouge were still being affected as of 3:50 p.m. Another 300 were affected in West Feliciana Parish.

A Demco spokesperson says the outage was caused by an issue with a transmission line. Most of those affected should have their power restored within the next couple hours.
