HOMES and offices around town have gone dark this afternoon after a power outage struck.
The power flicked off not long after 3.30pm, after an equipment failure.

Meanwhile dozens of residents have taken to Facebook to list affected areas including Sheridan St, Ellem Dr, Chinchilla Park Estate, Sommerfeld Cres, Bottletree Estate, Auburn Rd, Engine Rd, Warrego Hwy, Hayes Cl, King St, Glasson St, and Brigalow.
