At least 13,000 customers were without electricity Wednesday night in neighborhoods stretching from Montebello to Hollywood.

A problem at a substation caused outages in Montebello, Alhambra and South Pasadena, according to Southern California Edison.

The outages began around 9 p.m. and initially affected about 28,000 customers, a utility spokeswoman said.  Power was restored to nearly 15,000 people in about 20 minutes. Crews were working to restore electricity to all the affected areas.

[Updated at 10:31 p.m.: Power has been fully restored in Montebello, Alhambra and South Pasadena, Southern California Edison said.]

In Hollywood, which is served by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, an unknown number of customers were in the dark. It was unclear what caused the outage.
