Soda Fire

Idaho Power would like to thank our engineers and construction crews who spent the last few weeks restoring power to southwest Idaho and southeast Oregon after the tremendous damage caused by the Soda Fire, including loss of power to 590 Idaho Power customers in Jordan Valley. Our crews followed behind firefighters to ensure those affected by the fires could return to their properties with the complete use of their power.
For more information on who was affected by the fire-caused outages, and to see how our crews work to rebuild transmission throughout the fire season, please visit these other resources: For the most up-to-date information on active and contained fires, as well as rehabilitation efforts in your area, please visit InciWEB.
