SALT LAKE CITY — More than 2,000 Utahns were without power Saturday in Summit County.

Rocky Mountain Power tweeted just after 12 p.m. that 2,097 customers had lost power in Park City. That outage was caused by a pole fire, Rocky Mountain said. A tweet from the company reported that power had been restored to all affected customers by 3:30 p.m.

Another outage in Salt Lake County Saturday impacted over 5,000 customers around the same time. But Rocky Mountain Power spokesman David Eskelsen said power had been restored to the Sandy and Draper customers as of 1:30 p.m.

Rocky Mountain Power tweeted just before 1 p.m. that crews were aware of an outage affecting 5,180 customers. Eskelsen said three circuits were out of service at a Draper substation, but the problem was quickly fixed after initial estimates said the outage could last as late as 6 p.m.
