Power restored for Peninsula customers

All of the 7,376 Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. power customers on the Peninsula that lost power at 4 p.m. Thursday had their lights switched back on within 6 ½ hours, company officials said.

Service was gradually restored for the customers in Belmont and the City of San Mateo, from 41st Avenue to Ralston Avenue and from San Juan Boulevard to U.S. Highway 101, throughout the afternoon and evening. Full service was restored by 10:30 p.m.

The outage was caused by a fire at the top of a utility pole, according to company spokesman Joe Molica. Two separate circuits were affected, he said.

Fires were prevalent in the Bay Area on Thursday. The biggest fire burned on Yerba Buena Island near the Bay Bridge.
