About 35 homes were without power part of Thursday evening as crews worked to replace a faulty cable, Utah Power & Light Co. dispatchers said.

Power failed about 7 p.m. in a block of east Salt Lake, from 19th East to 23rd East and Ninth South to 10th South, dispatcher Jerry Thomas said."We've got a bad underground cable that caused a fuse to blow," Thomas said.

The repairs were completed in about 40 minutes, he said.
