South Tahoe Public Utility District, Liberty Utilities working to repair damage; customers still without power
Utility providers anticipate returning electric service to more than 100 customers in the Bijou Park area by 6 p.m.
About 115 Liberty Utilities customers lost power Wednesday afternoon after a car crashed into a fire hydrant.
South Tahoe Public Utility District asked Liberty to de-energize its underground lines in order to make repairs to the damaged hydrant, according to Liberty.
Liberty says repairs should be completed and power should be restored by 6 p.m.
