LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — NV Energy restored power to customers at Mount Charleston at about 10:45 a.m. Thursday after turning it off before 2 a.m. due to safety precautions.

There were 457 customers without power during the outage.

NV Energy warned residents Wednesday that a shutdown could happen in an effort to prevent wildfire.

It is called a Public Safety Outage Management event and it happens when it is very hot, very dry and windy. It is not unusual for NV Energy to shut off power if wildfire conditions are elevated.

During a PSOM event, a drive-thru resource center is made available to the residents.

The resource center was open at the Retreat at Charleston Peak on Kyle Canyon Road during the outage and NV Energy says no other outages are planned Thursday.
