FREMONT, Calif. —

More than 4,000 PG&E customers in Fremont were without power Saturday morning, according to a utility spokesman.

The outage that was affecting 4,035 customers was reported at 8:25 a.m., spokesman J.D. Guidi said.

The cause of the outage, which was affecting a large portion of the city, was under investigation, Guidi said.

There was no estimated time when power would return, however repair crews were working to get power back, he said.

Drivers were cautioned to treat intersections with either flashing red lights or no power at all as a four-way stop, according to police.
