Update: Major Power outage in Fort St. John

Power has been restored after an outage caused 2,200 customers to lose power for about one hour.

BC Hydro spokesperson Bob Gammer says the outage was caused by a crow. He says the crow spread out its wings and touched two power lines. The power went through the crows body and caused a phase to phase fault. This resulted in the two wires burning and a power outage. ‘

  

The area affected was South of the 246 Road, North of the 269 Road, West of 79th street and East of the 275 road.
