BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Linton-based power company says it is working to restore power to its customers in four south-central North Dakota counties.

KEM Electric Cooperative says in a recorded telephone message that power was out Monday morning to its rural electric consumers in Emmons, Kidder, Logan and McIntosh counties.

The cooperative says it has located the problem and is working to fix it. The company says it did not have an estimated time when power would be restored.

The company says it provides electricity to one of the more sparsely populated areas in the state, with an average of 1.2 members per mile of power line.
