Electricity was knocked out to more than 1,600 San Diego Gas & Electric Co. customers in the Rancho Santa Fe and Encinitas areas Wednesday when a tree toppled and took down a power line.

Firefighters were sent about 1 p.m. to El Camino Real and Highland Drive, near San Dieguito County Park, and found the wires down, according to a dispatcher.

No injuries were reported.

According to SDG&E, 1,653 customers lost power in Rancho Santa Fe, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Cardiff, Olivenhain, Eden Gardens and Lomas Santa Fe. By 4 p.m., repairs had been made to all but 72 customers.

Electricity was expected to be restored to the remaining customers by about 8 p.m., according to the utility.
