College officials say the power went out a little before 11:00 when smoke and flames were seen coming out of the Nebraska Public Power District substation on the campus at 12th and Main.
NPPD spokesman Mark Becker says the problem was a failed arrester, with crews able to reroute power around the substation while making repairs. Power was restored about 12:20.
