Power mostly restored after outage in San Francisco

Thursday, March 21, 2013

People woke up without power this morning in San Francisco's Bayview District.

Witnesses say a power line fell and caught a utility pole on fire, shortly before 2 a.m. It happened on Newhall Street, between Lydia and Bitting Avenues -- leaving more than 3,500 customers without power.

PG&E says that number is now down to about 160. It expects power will be restored to everyone by 10 a.m.
