Hundreds of Mesa SRP customers powerless again

Posted: Updated:

MESA, Ariz. -- For the second time in less than a week, hundreds of Mesa residents have found themselves without power, and it's happened on the hottest day of the year -- the fourth hottest on record.

The affected area is Signal Butte and Crismon. That is the same area that lost power when an SRP transformer caught fire in East Mesa on Thursday.

While that outage affects 150,000 customers, Saturday evening's incident affected about 1,200 customers.

There's no word yet on what caused the outage.

SRP said it hoped to have everyone back online by 11 p.m.
