Nearly 50 businesses and homes in Old Town Clovis endured an hour without power amid another hot day after a transformer failure.
The outage began about 6:45 p.m. Friday in the neighborhood occupied by popular restaurants, bars, antique stores and other retailers.
Forty-nine customers in all were impacted, according to Pacific Gas & Electric Co., and about a half-dozen of the company’s trucks arrived on the scene.
Some good news on a day when highs in the Clovis-Fresno area ranged from 104 to 106: PG&E reported that the restoration process was completed in about an hour.
The utility continues to investigate what made the transformer malfunction.
