Much of downtown Vancouver’s West End neighbourhood is in the dark this morning due to a down wire.

According to B.C. Hydro, the power outage began at 8:50 a.m. and is affecting nearly 3,600 customers in a large area east of Beach Avenue, north of Burrard Street, west of Hornby Street and south of Comox Street.

There is no estimate for when power will be restored.

UPDATE at 1:00 p.m.: Power has been restored.
