Hotel power failure strands people in elevator

A late afternoon power failure Tuesday in the electrical line at the Hampton Inn and Suites at 220 Delaware Avenue temporarily stranded some guests in an elevator, but no injuries were reported.

A Buffalo Fire Department crew was sent to the scene.

Stephen F. Brady, a spokesman for National Grid said the electric company’s lines in the Delaware and Chippewa area were operating well, and the hotel power problem was restricted to its own line.
