CLOVIS, California. (KSEE/KGPE) – A car crash left thousands of homes without power on Sunday morning, according to PG&E.

The company reported on its website that over 4,000 customers were without power after a car crashed into a pole near Bullard and De Wolf avenues.

Since then, the website has been updated to say that only 27 customers are still without power as of 1:20 p.m. on Sunday.

Officials say four homes were threatened by flames but were saved due to the effort from firefighters.
