SALT LAKE CITY -- A power outage affected a large area of northern Utah Tuesday night. It didn't last very long, but Rocky Mountain Power is now investigating to determine the cause.

Jeff Hymas with Rocky Mountain Power says the power bump hit at 9:18 p.m. and people have reported it from Weber County south to northern Utah County.

No word for sure on what caused the power bump, but Rocky Mountain is checking out a report of a fire at a substation in the area of 3300 South and 1300 West.

There apparently are not many reports of sustained power outages, but KSL News had several calls Tuesday night from people who noticed the power bump.
