Power Outage Affects More Than 10,000 Capital Region Unitil Customers
About 10,000 customers around the Concord area were without power for several hours Monday evening.
The city's main utility, Unitil, did not immediately provide a reason for the outage that hit shortly after 5 p.m. Monday, but later posted updates on their Twitter feed which indicated the blackout was caused by a pole fire that occurred at a substation.
Power was restored to all Capital Region customers shortly after 8 PM.
