About 4,000 Puget Sound Energy customers in the Tumwater area lost power for about an hour Monday morning, a spokesman for the utility said.

Equipment failed at a Tumwater substation about 7:30 a.m.

About 2,000 customers had their power restored at 8:30 a.m., spokesman Andrew Padula said.

Power was fully restored minutes later, he said.
