"Fog Blamed For Power Outage That Affected Thousands In SF Richmond District"

CBS:

The outage was first reported around 9:30 a.m. in the city’s Richmond District and initially affected some 4,600 homes and businesses.

A power pole at California St. and 16th Avenue had caught fire. A PG&E worker at the scene told KPIX that condensation from fog, possibly mixed with dirt and grime, likely caused an electrical arc.
