Power has been restored to customers in Teller County. It was out for a little more than one hour on Tuesday.
The outage began at about 6:20 p.m. Tuesday when a transformer blew out in the Westwood Lake Subdivision. It was restored by about 7:30 p.m. according to officials at the Teller County Sheriff's Office.
For many people the outage meant making plans to heat their homes a different way in the below-zero temperatures.
The Sheriff's Office says it received many calls about the outage, but couldn't confirm how many people were impacted.
The utility company, the Intermountain Rural Electrical Association, responded to customers complaints of the outage to restore power. It's not clear yet what caused the transformer to blow.
