Squirrel caused BG power outage
A squirrel that got into the wrong place at Bowling Green's West Poe Road electric substation is being blamed for a power outage that affected a large area west of Main Street and north of Wooster Street late Monday afternoon.
Director of Utilities Brian O'Connell said this morning crews responding to the outage found a dead squirrel and determined the location of the animal as the reason a circuit feeding the station tripped off line.
Power was restored to affected areas within an hour, he said.
