SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Portland General Electric is recalling 70,000 residential meters because some are not performing up to standards and, in rare cases, catching fire.

The Statesman Journal newspaper (https://is.gd/ssu2sA ) reports the meters are primarily installed at rental properties and contain a specific technology that allows the meter to be turned on and off remotely.

The company says customers whose meters are affected have been mailed letters that were sent Wednesday.
