Tree cutting knocks out Cobb power

COBB – A tree that fell into power lines caused an outage late Friday for several hundred Cobb-area residents.


Pacific Gas and Electric reported Saturday that the outage, which occurred at 4:19 p.m. Friday, was caused when a third party was cutting down a tree.


The tree fell into the power lines, knocking them down, said company spokesperson Brandi Ehlers.


Initially, the outage left approximately 646 customers without power, Ehlers said.


“We were able to restore 559 at 8:05 p.m.,” she said.


The remaining 87 customers' power was restored at 1:38 a.m. Saturday, Ehlers reported.
