SAN DIEGO - A power outage knocked out electrical service to more than 2,000 homes and businesses in Hillcrest, Mission Hills and Old Town Thursday.
The blackout began about 11:45 a.m., according to San Diego Gas & Electric.
Utility crews had service restored to all affected neighborhoods by about 2 p.m., SDG&E spokeswoman Gina Jacobs said.
The cause of the outage was under investigation. It occurred in the same general area as one that was caused by a faulty underground cable earlier this week, but it was unclear if the same equipment was to blame, Jacobs said.
