About 1,000 customers without power in Hollywood, DWP says
The outage affected mostly residential areas and was reported shortly after 8:30 p.m., the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power said.
"Our crews are there investigating," said agency spokeswoman Terry Schneider.
She said a cause of the outage had not been determined. It was unclear when the power would be restored.
The Los Angeles Police Department said a power poll had toppled in the 8400 block of Hillside Avenue in the Hollywood Hills and that firefighters had requested officers to help keep people away from the scene.
