REXBURG — About 750 Fall River Electric customers are without power in Rexburg and Madison County Friday evening. A small group of Rocky Mountain Power customers in Jefferson County are also without power.

The Madison County outage began shortly after 7 p.m.

Fall River officials tell EastIdahoNews.com crews have been dispatched to repair the outage, but at the moment it is unclear what is causing it.

About 49 Rocky Mountain Power customers also are without power in Rigby due to an equipment problem. Those customers lost power at 5:10 p.m.

Crews are working to repair the problem and power is expected to be restored to these customers by 8 p.m.
