WEST VALLEY CITY — About 2,400 West Valley homes were without power Thursday morning.
Residents in the 84119 and 84120 zip codes lost power when a transformer blew around 7:15 a.m., leaving about 2,400 customers in the dark.
Crews are trying to determine whether the damage came from a pole fire in the area, a snow plow that crashed into a light pole, or a combination of the two, according to Rocky Mountain Power spokeswoman Margaret Oler.
"We don't know how all of that is affecting each other," she said.
Rocky Mountain Power officials estimate they will restore service by noon.
Those traveling in the area can expect traffic delays.
A second major powere outage occurred in Salt Lake City overnight. A pole fire caused about 1,200 customers in the downtown area to lose power just before 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oler said. Their power was restored just after 4:30 a.m.
