It was a sweltering Tuesday for residents in Forest Hill after power was knocked out in the area since Monday night.

Power went out at around 8:30 p.m. due to a problem with Toronto Hydro’s equipment underground.

Shortly after 2 p.m. on Tuesday, the power utility said power had been restored to all customers.

At its height, the area of the outage was bounded by Bathurst Street, Avenue Road, Glencairn Avenue and Eglinton Avenue, affecting around 1,000 customers.
