A power outage was reported in the Canyon Country area Thursday morning, affecting thousands of residents at home and in nearby shopping centers.  

The outage was reported at 8:54 a.m. and affected around 20,532 residents, according to Southern California Edison spokeswoman Taelor Bakewell. 

Power was restored by 9:09 a.m., she added. 

Affected areas reached included parts of Canyon Country, Santa Clarita, Newhall and Saugus, with Walmart Supercenter on Carl Boyer Drive as one of the retailers reportedly affected by the outage. 

The cause was due to a bird entering the equipment, said Bakewell.
