Vandals cut four hydro poles down in Surrey early this morning, knocking out power to thousands of people.
BC Hydro says the vandals used a chainsaw to cut down the four transmission poles carrying 60,000 volts.
The outage affected 6,000 BC Hydro customers.
BC Hydro says the poles were cut at about 1 a.m in the Green Timbers area of Surrey.
Work replacing the damaged poles should be completed later today.
These power poles carry 2 sets of 25,000-volt lines. This was incredibly dangerous; working with RCMP to investigate pic.twitter.com/SXqVEla0JA— BC Hydro (@bchydro) April 13, 2016
