SAN FRANCISCO —
About 3,900 PG&E customers in parts of San Francisco's Potrero Hill neighborhood and Mission District lost power Tuesday afternoon due to an alleged equipment failure, a utility spokesman said.
Around 3:35 p.m. the outage was reported in parts of Potrero Hill and the southern Mission District, spokesman Joe Molica said.
The cause of the outage was believed to be an equipment failure near where Cesar Chavez Street hits Interstate Highway 280.
Molica said initially there was a report of car hitting a power pole in that area, but he said that information was unfounded
San Francisco Municipal Railway spokesman Paul Rose said traffic lights were out between Castro and Mission streets from 14th to 22nd streets as of 4:30 p.m.
Power was resorted to all but 19 customers around 4:40 p.m. after the outage was reported at 3:35 p.m. in parts of Potrero Hill and the southern Mission District, spokesman Joe Molica said.
The remaining customers were expected to have power back by around 6 p.m., Molica said.
