Around 69 homes in Norwich were without hot water and electricity for three during a power cut.
The power cut was first reported at around 2.30pm on Wednesday afternoon in the NR2 3 area of the city.
Hot water and electricity had both been cut off in the Mount Pleasant and Eaton areas of Norwich, due to UK Power Networks (UKPN) engineers having to turn the power off to safely repair two faults on their network.
Speaking at the time of the power cut, a spokesman from UKPN said: 'Engineers are working as quick as possible to restore power to 69 customers.
'For safety reasons we have had to turn off the power at 2.39pm while we attended to an underground fault on Connaught Road.
