Close to 10,000 hydro customers in the Bancroft area have their power back after an outage.

Hydro One says a pole fire caused the outage at the Bancroft, Peterborough and Tweed operations centres. This turned the lights off in areas like: Faraday, Tudor and Cashel, Cardiff and Wollaston.

The power went out just before 3:00pm today. It was restored roughly six hours later.
