REXBURG — Around 9,900 Rocky Mountain Power customers lost power at 12:10 p.m. Friday in the Rexburg area.
The cause of the outage was a faulty switch at the Rexburg substation, which resulted in electricity arcing and flames, according to Rocky Mountain Power officials. Crews are working to fix the problem.
Full power is expected to be restored citywide by 9:30 p.m., officials said.
Several witnesses sent EastIdahoNews.com videos of the fire at the substation, which can be viewed above.
The majority of the outages appear to be in north Rexburg, although about 400 customers are experiencing outages south of the city.
