The cause of a power outage leaving 100 PG&E customers in San Francisco's Noe Valley neighborhood without power this morning was a nearby lightning strike, a utility spokesman said.

The outage was reported at 1:12 a.m. and impacted three transformers along 24th Street, PG&E spokesman J.D. Guidi said.

Crews are on scene working to fix the transformers located on 24th street at Hoffman Avenue, Fountain Street and Grandview Avenue, Guidi said.

There is no estimated time of restoration, according to Guidi.
