FENTON, MO (KTVI)- Ameren crews have been working overnight after storms knocked out power to more than 100,000 customers across Missouri and Illinois. One blown transformer was caught on camera.

A fireball shot into the sky from a power line near Minnesota and Pestalozzi in south St. Louis. Ameren Missouri says there was likely a short circuit on the line.
