Nearly 1,500 people were affected by a power outage in the northwest area of Pueblo this morning. Their power was restored shortly after 8 a.m.

Black Hills Energy reported the outage shortly before 7:30 Sunday morning and dispatched crews to find the source of the outage.

A spokesman for the energy company did say that the outage is related to a failure at a feeder substation, Hyde Park, and that a power circuit there failed.

Areas affected by the outage included 18th Street north to Highway 50 in northwest Pueblo. A total of 1,489 customers were without power for almost an hour before it was restored.

The outage was wildlife-related, the energy company says. That means it could have been caused by something like a squirrel or a bird.
