An Avista spokeswoman says the outages were due to a power line fire at the intersection of Trent and Pines Road.

Because of this morning's outages, the Genesee Joint School District cancelled all classes for Thursday February 26th. According to the school district, Avista Utilities indicated that the power outage was expected to last for more than four hours.

The Brewster School District in Washington was also running on a two hour delay because of high winds and heavy snow in that area.
