Lathrup Village — A "smoking" wire down on a street in Lathrup Village on Tuesday morning has been fixed.

An overhead cable fell onto Santa Barbara Street, south of Lacrosse, after being hit by a contractor. That area is a residential neighborhood south of 12 Mile, east of Evergreen.

The city called DTE Energy, which said late Tuesday a transformer had been repaired and the downed wire fixed.

Nearly two blocks of customers were affected, said DTE spokesman John Fossen.
