All power has been restored after multiple power outages left large swaths of Toronto in the dark, Toronto Hydro says.
At the peak of the outages, the utility says about 40,000 customers had been affected.
Toronto Hydro first tweeted about the outages around 5:40 p.m. The utility said the outages stemmed from "a loss of supply" from Hydro One.
Meghan Collie, spokesperson for Hydro One, said the loss of supply was caused by animal contact at its Ellesmere transmission station.
Toronto police said the outages primarily affected Scarborough and the Lawrence-Eglinton area.
Some residents reported the lights came back on shortly after losing power. Toronto Hydro said all customers had their lights back on by 6:50 p.m.
