LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Crews Friday restored power to the Fairfax District, where residents were in the dark for hours.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power first aimed to have service restored by 6 a.m., but that was later postponed. Power was ultimately back on by noon.

About 3,450 customers, including those at The Grove, and on the other side of Third Street at the Park La Brea apartment complex were without power since 3:30 p.m. Thursday.

Temperatures were expected to hit triple digits and break heat records in several areas throughout Southern California Friday. The heat wave, which will feel even worse due to the high humidity, is expected to last through Saturday and dissipate slightly Sunday.
