6,900 San Mateo County residents lose powerBy Joshua Melvin
A downed power line briefly left about 14,000 San Mateo County residents in the dark Tuesday afternoon.
Service to about 3,000 homes in San Bruno was knocked out around 1:30 p.m. and crews had it fixed by 2:20 p.m., said Pacific Gas and Electric Co. spokesman Matt Nauman.
The outage included an area bordered by San Felipe and Huntington avenues as well as Interstate 280.
It appears a power line was knocked down, but it was not immediately clear why, Nauman said.
About 9,900 customers in Pacifica also lost power for about half an hour, but by 2 p.m. their service was working again.
