SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (BCN) - Pacific Gas and Electric crews are working to restore power to 1,600 customers in San Francisco's Richmond District who are still without power from an outage that started earlier Sunday, a spokeswoman said.
The outage near the corner of California and 16th streets started around 9:30 a.m. and affected about 4,600 PG&E customers.
The outage was caused by an equipment failure, according to preliminary investigation, according to Jacqueline Ratto, a PG&E spokeswoman.
"We have been able to restore power to more than 3,000 customers since the start of the incident," Ratto said. It's not yet known when the remaining PG&E customers' power will be restored.
