At about 11 pm on Sunday night, a vehicle ran into a power pole causing an outage to eight homes near Alvarado in the 1700 block where the accident happened. A fire hydrant was also hit, causing a geyser.
SDG&E reported that power would be fully restored by Monday at 4pm, however, some residents reported that power was restored before 4 am Monday and internet is still out.
"Last night, NCFPD responded to a traffic collision in that area of the 1700 block of East Alvarado Street in Fallbrook. There was a sheared power line pole and hydrant from this incident. Power projected to be restored by 4 PM," reported NCFPD PIO John Choi.
