More than 2,200 PG&E customers were without power in San Francisco’s South of Market area after a bird flew into power lines there, a utility spokesman said.

Power was knocked out to 2,207 customers around 3:45 p.m. when a bird made contact with two power lines near Bryant and Alameda streets, PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said.

All but 223 customers had their power restored shortly after 5 p.m. The remaining impacted customers should have power back shortly thereafter, Molica said.

The bird died in the incident, he said.
