The lines on the 11000 block of Sorrento Valley Rd. were down at about 10 a.m. Friday, according to the San Diego Fire Department.

The fire department estimated that about 1,800 customers were out of power. Customers in Mira Mesa, Scripps Ranch, Torrey Pines, Sorrento Valley and University City were also affected by the outage.
