Fallen electrical wires left nearly 5,000 customers without power in the Chula Vista area Thursday, San Diego Gas and Electric confirmed.

Video sent to NBC 7 by viewer Miguel Duarte-Arellano showed live wires sparking on the rain-soaked ground on E. Oneida Street. 

The outage began at around 8:15 p.m. after an afternoon of rain, according to SDG&E.

It was not determined what caused the wires to go down. 

Customers in Chula Vista, Castle Park and Otay Mesa were affected. By 9:15 p.m., the utility said less than 20 customers were without power.

SDG&E estimated full power was restored at 11 p.m.
