The lights are back on after the Greater Napanee downtown core was in the dark for a few hours Wednesday morning.

myFM spoke with OPP Inspector Scott Semple, who stated that the crane came into contact in the Gibbard District of Napanee, Ont. which has high voltage powerlines.

There were no injuries, reported Inspector Semple, adding that those who were temporarily evacuated from the area are now back in place.

Insp. Semple says in the end it all came together well with all the emergency services, who all worked together to get the situation resolved.
