Squirrel blamed for power outage in Alabama

PHENIX CITY, Ala. (AP) - A squirrel is being blamed for a power
outage that left about 5,000 Alabama Power customers in the dark
for a couple of hours Saturday.
      Alabama Power officials told The Columbus-Ledger Enquirer that a
squirrel got into a transformer Saturday morning and caused
breakers in a substation to lock out.
      Power was restored in waves in different parts of the city by
about 11 a.m. Saturday.
