A blown transformer has left thousands of people in Chico County, California without power.

The outage was caused by a blown transformer and downed power lines, according to the Chico Fire Department (CFD).

CFD officials said PG&E crews have arrived on the scene and are working to restore power.

Power had been restored to about 62% of over 3,000 PG&E customers affected by Wednesday night, while PG&E’s outage tracker no longer shows any outage in Chico county.
