Area Wide Power Outage
At approximately 2:57 pm today Portland General Electric disconnected the power to nearly 2,400 homes in the Redland area in order to address a power pole that caught on fire on Redland Road near the intersection of School Road. We captured the smoldering pole in this picture.
According to the Portland General Electric website the estimated restoration time is 5:15 pm. At the time of this post the power had restored but it is possible that additional outages will occur while their crews work through the problem.
