STUTTGART, Germany — A power outage blackened Kelley Barracks in Stuttgart-Moehringen for 30 minutes Wednesday morning.

The barracks is home to Army Garrison Stuttgart headquarters and various offices and military housing. Jennifer Sanders, a garrison spokeswoman, said the outage had negligible effect on operations at Kelley.

Keith Freeman, network operations chief for the 52nd Signal Battalion, said the barracks’ “critical systems remained operational due to backup power.”

A spokesman for EnBW, the region’s electric supplier, said that one of its 10,000-volt cables malfunctioned, causing the blackout.
