A crew from NorthWestern Energy accidentally knocked out power in parts of Butte, Divide and Melrose Wednesday afternoon.

Power was out for parts of Butte just before 2 p.m. for about a half hour after a crew was doing routine maintenance work on the substation at Montana Street, according to NorthWestern Energy. Power was later restored to Butte, but crews were still trying to bring power back to customers in Divide and Melrose that afternoon.
