About 1,500 homes in Richland lost power last night and into the early morning.

City workers say a snake got into a piece of electrical equipment. It knocked out power to homes along Keene Road from I-182 to Leslie Road.

The outage started at about 11:30 PM and electricity was back on by 2:00 AM.
