Curious Squirrel Knocks Oot Power In Kansas

A squirrel too curious for its own good caused an outage that left the Statehouse and other downtown Topeka buildings briefly without power on Thursday, according to Westar Energy Inc. Company spokeswoman Gina Penzig said the squirrel got into a power substation and was touching different parts of a circuit, causing electricity to flow through its body and overload the circuit. The power went out about 8:30 am and returned about a halfhour later. Besides the Statehouse, two state government office buildings were affected.
