A four state community is literally in the dark tonight. Most of the residents in the city of Miami, Oklahoma are without power.

An explosion at an electrical substation near Steve Owens Boulevard and Elm Street sparked a fire causing the outage. The incident happened just before 6 pm.

Miami police say it could take up to 12 hours or longer to restore power to all affected residents.
