Wildlife is believed to be the cause of a power outage which blacked out portions of Kingaroy on Sunday morning.
Local residents reported hearing an explosion just prior to the power being cut off for 1371 customers about 6:15am.
An Ergon spokesperson said repair crews also received reports of explosions but could not find anything to substantiate it.
“The line was patrolled but the cause was unable to be located,” he said.
“It was suspected to be caused by wildlife of some kind.”
Power was restored by 9:45am.
