Pole fire takes out power of more than 1,800 customers in Cole Valley area

A power outage that appears to have been caused by a pole fire at 2775 Market St. this morning affected 1,847 customers in the Cole Valley area.

The outage caused by the fire first started at 10:01 a.m., according to PG&E spokesperson JD Guidi, who said that the company was able to significantly reduce the affected customer count 45 minutes into the outage.

By 10:45 a.m., only 116 customers remained affected. Guidi said that those customers can expect to have their power restored by 3 p.m. today.

“We have to replace the crossarm on a pole at the [Market Street] location. Crews are on-site and working as safely and quickly as possible to make those repairs,” said Guidi.

While the initial outage impacted residents throughout Cole Valley and in parts of Corona Heights and Ashbury Heights, the remaining customers are located primarily along 17th, Douglas and Market streets, according to Guidi.
