It was a frosty 40 minutes this morning for people living in three neighbourhoods.

The lights and heat went out in North Park, North Industrial and Richmond Heights at about 7:10 am CST.

The city's power department says it received numerous calls in the 40 minutes that things went dark. 

No reason yet for the loss of power.
