Most newspaper deliveries of The Elkhart Truth will be delayed until Saturday after a fire underground in a man hole caused damage to power circuits in South Bend Thursday night, May 15.

Only a third of the newspapers were printed before the outages. For those who don’t get a Friday edition of the newspaper, it will be delivered on Saturday. As of 1:30 p.m. Friday, the printing presses were up and running again in South Bend.

Friday’s edition can be viewed online for free via our new digital edition. The Elkhart Truth sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience.

The fire and subsequent outages in South Bend originated at Washington Street and Lafayette Boulevard, as reported by The Elkhart Truth’s news partner WNDU.

Erica Putt, communications representative for I&M, said in a press release Friday morning that workers are waiting for the smoke to clear from the fire to begin assessing the damage done to the underground equipment.

As of 6:30 a.m. about 800 I&M customers were still without power, Putt said. Those customers include, among other places, where The Elkhart Truth is printed and South Bend Memorial Hospital, WNDU reported.

He takes medication to control his dark moods, he's had extensive counseling to help him cope with conflict and he leans on his supportive family as he wrestles with scarring memories earned a decade ago far away.  He says he is OK to return to work and that he's got medical reports to prove it. So far, SunEdison won't let him back.  The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission estimates 400,000 veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan have some form of PTSD.  (AP Photo/Houston Chronicle, Johnny Hanson)
