TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Power has been restored for more than two thousand families on the southeast side. TEP crews have been working on the problem since 6 p.m. Saturday.

Officials blame equipment failure for the loss of power to 2,200 families, many of them in the Houghton and Valencia area.

A Valero gas station just down the street had to close. Its credit and debit card machine was out of service and the gas pumps didn't work.

Many residents were interrupted during a sporting game on TV or household chores. Luckily, the power wasn't out for very long.

"It didn't put a big damper on our plans but my daughter unfortunately couldn't continue doing her homework," Rebecca Warren said. "Our air conditioner went out and the house got really uncomfortable."

Many said they didn't expect the outage since there were no storms.
