Fallen cable blocks road in Wausau


A fallen cable line caused road blockage in Wausau Friday night, that's according to the Marathon County Sheriff's Department. 

Sheriff's officials say the heavy wind caused a branch to hit the cable line and the line fell to the ground. They say it happened on Franklin Street and Spur Lane.

 The line has been repaired. A portion of Franklin Street was blocked off but has since reopened.
