Power back on for the nearly 2,000 Boise customers hit with outage

More than 1900 Idaho Power customers in Northwest Boise were without power Friday morning, according to Idaho Power.

From State Street to the Boise River, and from Whitewater Boulevard to the Plantation Golf Course, customers were experiencing power outages. By 8:30 a.m. power was restored to all customers, according to Idaho Power.

The outage was caused by a squirrel getting into the equipment, Idaho Power said.
