spill reached an underground electrical vault, knocking out power to 5,543 Southern California Edison customers in Perris, Lake Elsinore and Menifee.

Though repairs were not expected to be completed until 5:30 p.m., crews were able to get the lights back on in all locations by 3 p.m., an SCE spokeswoman told City News Service.

A county fire engine crew secured the hydrant.
