Neighborhood Power Outage Caused By Squirrel

By  | 

Xcel Power Company says a small neighborhood power outage early Sunday morning was caused by a squirrel.

Several viewers around 5th Ave. and 14th Street in North Fargo say power went out around 8 a.m.

Xcel Power officials say that they believe a squirrel's tail got caught on the transformer causing it to short out.

Crews were called out to the scene and got the power back on for about 18 people an hour later.
