The heat is back on in Hayward, where a natural gas malfunction cut off service to 1,750 homes and businesses Thursday.

It was 25 below zero when a piece of equipment at a regulating station broke down about 6 a.m.


We Energies fixed the problem right away. But everybody's gas lines had to be shut off and their pilot lights re-lit before service could resume.

Almost 1,000 customers had their heat back by 10 p.m. and the rest were expected to be back online by midnight.
