BOISE -- Over 1,000 people in Boise were without power Saturday afternoon.

Around 4 p.m., an outage that ranged from Boise to Garden City affected 1,369 customers at its peak.

Ada County Dispatch said that a blown transformer at the corner of Chinden and Maple Grove was the cause of the outage. The transformer blowing did spark a small grass fire, but crews on scene were quickly able to bring it under control.

Idaho Power said they had crews on scene soon after the problem was identified to begin fixing the problem.
