SQUIRREL IN WEST SENECA CAUSES POWER OUTAGE

A squirrel blew up a transformer Sunday morning on Orchard Park Road, West Seneca, knocking out power to about 2,000 New York State Electric & Gas Corp. customers for close to two hours.

"The squirrel got along the top of the transformer," said local NYSEG spokesman Dan Tillman.

Households affected by the outage, which began at about 10 a.m., were on Orchard Park, East and West, Angle roads and adjoining streets.
