Over 2,000 customers in Columbia were without power for a few hours Saturday afternoon. All in the central Columbia area.

The outage started around 3 p.m. and was resolved two hours later.

The power outage was first noticed just after Columbia fire crews responded to a small grass fire on Redwood Road. Firefighters were able to swiftly get the fire under control.

The outage began in the same area as the fire. ABC 17 is working to confirm whether these incidents are connected.
