A fire knocked out power to thousands of customers in Pueblo early Thursday morning.

As of 9:30 a.m., utility company Black Hills Energy says that all customers have had their power restored. Some were without power for several hours.

Black Hills Energy says an electrical pole caught fire, causing an outage on different sides of town.

The bulk of those affected live in the downtown area, where roughly 19,000 customers lost power. Almost 350 customers on the north side of Pueblo, near Highway 47, also lost power overnight.
