A fire on a BC Hydro pole on Monday afternoon resulted in a power outage to about 4,200 homes in Abbotsford.

The incident occurred on Primrose Street, and BC Hydro had to shut off the power so that fire crews could fight the small fire. Power was out from just after 3 p.m. and was fully restored by around 8:30 p.m.

The outage ran east of Alta Avenue, south of Bevan Road, north of Marshall Road and west of Ware Street.
