Nearly 3,000 Glendale Water & Power customers lose power

About 2,900 Glendale Water & Power customers lost power at 5:25 p.m. Tuesday due to an explosion that damaged a cable in an electrical vault, according to a city spokesman.

The affected area was on the west side of the city, stretching roughly three miles from Monterey Road and the Ventura (134) Freeway toward Flower Street. The vault is located on the 1100 block of North Columbus Avenue.

Power was returned to 90% of the affected customers within an hour, said City Spokesman Tom Lorenz. All power was restored in the affected area around 8:30 p.m.

The cause of the damage has yet to be determined, he said.
