Idaho Power confirmed that power had been restored to a section of Boise's downtown after an outage—caused by debris on a power line—had knocked off the lights to more than 400 customers.


Idaho Power tells Citydesk that a power outage in Boise's Downtown should be over in a matter of minutes.

Idaho Power Corporate Communication Specialist Kevin Winslow told BW that 431 customers were hit by the outage, which began shortly after 9 a.m., due to debris caught in the main power line. The impacted area was (running North to South) from Fort Street to BODO and (running East to West) from 1st to 10th Streets.

"I just got off the line with dispatch and we're expecting to be up and running in a half-hour or less," Winslow told BW at 9:45 a.m.
