Squir­rel to blame for power out­age in Fair­field

The Day - - OBITUARIES -

Fair­field (AP) — Con­necti­cut of­fi­cials say a squir­rel is to blame for the power out­age that af­fected more than 1,000 peo­ple this week.

The Con­necti­cut Post re­ports about 1,300 peo­ple lost power in Fair­field Wednesday morn­ing.

United Il­lu­mi­nat­ing was able to quickly re­store elec­tric­ity, and fire of­fi­cials say they traced the is­sue to a squir­rel that shorted the cir­cuit.

The con­di­tion of the squir­rel has not been re­leased.

Wednesday marks the sec­ond time in less than two months that squir­rels have caused power out­ages in the town.
