An outage knocked out power to about 50 customers in the California Avenue area early this morning, Assistant Director of Utility Operations Dean Batchelor said.

The outage, which affected the 200-400 block of California and several customers on Birch Street and Cambridge Avenue, was first reported at 1:21 a.m., Batchelor said.

The outage was caused by a faulty transformer and power was restored to 35 customers by 6:17 a.m., he said. Power was expected to be restored to the final 15 customers by about 11 a.m., Batchelor said.
