KOOTENAI CO., Idaho — Power has been restored to thousands of Kootenai Electric customers.

Approximately 7,000 KEC members in the northern part of Kootenai County experienced the outage Monday morning.

A release from KEC said it was caused by an Avista transmission line outage. Avista’s transmission line feeds power to two of KEC’s substations in those areas.
