Squirrel Sparks Power Outages In Bangor
A squirrel knocked out power to more than 800 Emera Maine customers after entering a substation in Bangor Friday morning.
Customers along a number of the "tree Streets" lost power. Hogan Road, State Street and Stillwater Avenue homes were affected as well, the utility said in a release.
The release, sent out just after 9:30 a.m., said electricians were still at the substation making repairs.
The animal also knocked out power to several street lights in the area.
