Lights Out in Etobicoke

4000 customers in the dark

It could be a long weekend for some families in Etobicoke.

Some 4-thousand customers are without power after a hydro pole caught fire Friday night

The area that borders the outage is the 401 down to Eglinton, and Highway 27 in the west to Jane St.

Toronto Hydro officials aren't sure how long the outage is going to be.

They say the pole will have to be replaced, so it could be a couple of hours or a couple of days depending on the damage.

      @Brief and to the Point Actually it's Wynne's Hydro! Rates go up, up, up and service down.
      Why don't people blame Wynne - she's campaigning now with all her promises, which will be paid how?

      @Brandy Judging from your inability to read, you must be a Ford supporter.

      The problem is stated to be from Toronto Hydro and the lack of infrastructure improvements over the past few (4 anyone?) years.

      Read it again, dear. You might get it if you try.

      Only an illiterate Ford supporter would fail to see the difference between Toronto Hydro and Hydro One.
