A power outage darkened part of Anaheim's Resort District Friday night. Police think copper thieves could be to blame.

Anaheim police believe thieves were inside a shuttered motel at the corner of Katella Avenue and Harbor Boulevard, attempting to steal electrical wire. But they ended up getting shocked, causing a power outage in the area.

Many people reported hearing a loud boom just before the lights went out.

Both men have been transported to a local hospital with severe burns. Their conditions were not known.
