CHUBBUCK, Idaho -

About 1,300 power customers were without power after a power pole went down on Yellowstone in Chubbuck on Monday morning.

The outage affected those from Hawthorne east to the railroad tracks and from Syphon to Quinn.

An Idaho Power phone message said the power pole went down due to a traffic accident. The power was back on by noon.
