Squirrel causes power outage in Grass Valley

Over 1,200 Pacific Gas & Electric customers in Grass Valley were without power Tuesday morning after a squirrel made contact with overhead power equipment just before 9 a.m.

According to Paul Moreno of PG&E, all power was restored to the area by 10:30 a.m. after crews patrolled the circuit and reset fuses.

Comcast internet and cable services — which were also interrupted — were restored about 10:40 a.m. Traffic lights at the intersection of East Main and Richardson streets were also affected by the outage.
