    A major power outage is impacting a sizable portion of Brick this evening.

    Over 4,000 JCP&L customers are without power in the northern Ocean County municipality shortly after 9:00 p.m., according to the utility. 

    The impacted area is generally north of the Metedeconk River. 

    It’s due to an earlier fire at a local substation, according to Ocean County Police, Fire, & EMS on Facebook.

    The utility expects to restore power by 10:30 p.m.
