Energex crews are working to restore power to hundreds of homes on the Sunshine Coast.

The lights went out at more than 1,500 homes and businesses across Buddina, Warana, Minyama and Parrearra in the early hours of this morning, also taking out street and traffic lights along Nicklin Way.

A crow’s nest on the powerlines sparked the incident, however when Energex crews arrived to fix the issue they also found a secondary fault.
