About 20 per cent of customers in the vicinity of the Shelter Cove fire have had power restored.
Power was cut off to nearly 1,400 customers Monday night at the request of emergency officials to ensure the safety of crews fighting the fire near hydro equipment
BC Hydro spokesperson Mora Scott said close to 300 of those customers had power restored last night.
"We were able to do some switching to get those customers back on. Crews worked on a solution last night to try and get some of those customers back on," said Scott.
"They are going to continue to look at options today about what they can do for customers who are still out."
In the meantime, Scott has a message for those who have had their power restored.
"We really want to make sure this reconfigured system doesn't get overloaded. We are asking customers to try and only use the power that is necessary. Only plug in and turn on what they need to."
