Xcel Energy continues to work with fire officials to ensure customer safety. Xcel Energy de-energized 83 customers in the Seven Hills area this morning after they were ordered to evacuate. The Seven Hills area continues to be without power.
Additionally, power and natural gas to the Knollwood sub-division have been turned off due to the proximity of the fire. This is affecting about 94 customers in an area from Sunshine Canyon Drive and Mapleton Avenue to the north, Pearl Street to the south, 3rd Street to the east, and Knollwood Drive to the west.
In total, there are now approximately 177 electric customers and 50 gas customers without service. Xcel Energy will continue to coordinate efforts with firefighters as they work to contain the wildfires.
