ROTHSCHILD, Wis (WSAU) A truck knocked over a utility pole, causing a power outage that impacted around 500 Wisconsin Public Service customers in Rothschild and Schofield. The accident happened just before 9pm at Alderson Street and Grossman Drive in Rothschild.

As of 3am there were 25 homes without electricity in Schofield.
WPS is also working on a separate outage that has left 164 people without power in Three Lakes. The cause of that problem isn't clear.
