CenturyTel technicians are working to restore service to Enterprise and Kinston after a blown fuse caused a widespread outage Wednesday afternoon about 2:45.

Unlike a fiber cut, which can be quickly resolved by re-routing telephone traffic, the power surge occurred at the Enterprise Central Office.

As many as 16,000 lines may be affected. We'll have more information as it becomes available.
