About 10,000 customers around the Concord area were without power for several hours Monday evening.

The city's main utility, Unitil, did not immediately provide a reason for the outage that hit shortly after 5 p.m. Monday, but later posted updates on their Twitter feed which indicated the blackout was caused by a pole fire that occurred at a substation. 

Power was restored to all Capital Region customers shortly after 8 PM.
