VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Georgia Power officials have repaired two electric poles on Lee Street after a power failure left nearly 2,400 homes in the dark Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Officials say somehow one pole fell, bringing down a second pole and multiple power lines down.

They're not sure what damaged or weakened the pole.

Valdosta Fire and Police officials say there's no evidence that a vehicle crashed into it.

"This case there were no vehicles on scene when we got there; there's no evidence of any type of vehicle having ran into a power pole. So it was just one of those incidents were something must have happened probably internally with the pole," said Valdosta Fire Chief J.D. Rice.

Georgia Power crews were on scene for about 12 hours repairing the poles.
