Puget Sound Energy crews are currently investigating an outage in Issaquah’s Olde Town neighborhood that initially left more than 6,800 people without power.

PSE spokesperson Janet Kim said the cause of the outage could be equipment failure, though they are not positive yet.

The failed equipment PSE is investigating is within the West Issaquah Substation, which serves areas west of Issaquah and north of Interstate 90, Kim said.
