It's still unclear if the heat had anything to do with a power outage in Northeast Fresno.
But more than a dozen stores in the River Park Shopping Center were forced to close early, as a result of not having electricity.
PG&E representatives say at least 27-hundred customers lost power.
The power outage began around 7:30 Friday night.
KMPH News saw a number of PG&E trucks in the area, but so far the power company says it doesn't yet know the reason.
The outage caught many by surprise.
Roy Hernandez says, "Power is out and I can't get any yogurt. It's hot and no yogurt, what's wrong with this world."
Amber Bridges says, "We went to Yard House and in the middle of dinner the lights went out and then we started smelling smoke and then here's your bills and had to go." Reporter asks, "You still had to pay your bill?" She says, "Yes."
Bill Adanalian says, "Trying to find a place for dinner, dinner at Pismo's and no power there and came over here and no power here either."
Around 9:30 power was restored, several stores reopened but managers said there were very few customers.
