Power has been restored to more than 6,000 PG&E customers in Fremont Tuesday, with about 100 customers without power Tuesday evening.

A blown fuse and downed wire on Beard Road, just north of Whitehead Lane, cut off power to about 6,200 PG&E customers at around 8:45 a.m., PG&E spokeswoman Brittany McKannay said.

Power was restored to about 4,800 customers as of 9:15 a.m.

As of about 4:15 p.m., the number of customers affected was down to about 100, McKannay said.

Crews remain in the area working to repair wires and completely restore power to all customers, McKannay said.
