SAN FRANCISCO —
Birds flew into an overhead line and knocked out power to about 2,000 PG&E customers in San Francisco for about an hour Monday morning, a utility spokesman said.
The outage was reported at 10:54 a.m. and affected customers in parts of the city's Mission, South of Market and Eureka Valley neighborhoods, PG&E spokesman Jason King said.
Crews responded and discovered that pigeons had flown into an overhead line, King said.
Power was restored by 11:50 a.m., he said.
