Thousands of residents are without telephone, cable television and Internet service after wildfires and strong winds across the region damaged fiber-optic cables, officials said Monday. About 9,500 Charter Communications customers in Malibu, Agoura Hills, parts of Calabasas, Hidden Hills, unincorporated areas of Topanga and an unincorporated area next to Woodland Hills are without service, spokesman Craig Watson said. Customers lost power Sunday afternoon after flames burned hundreds of feet of a fiber-optic cable that provides service to nine out of 10 Malibu customers. Charter customers should be able to watch Channels 2, 4 and 7 if they unplug their television cable from their cable box and plug it directly into their television, Watson said.

But thousands of customers already have had their service restored, said spokeswoman Patti Rockenwagner. The number of people without power “is truly dynamic and it depends on the situation,” Rockenwagner said. Crews for both companies have to wait for roads to reopen to make repairs, making it difficult to estimate when service will be restored.
