Squirrel causes brief power outage to 1,500 Glendale customers

A squirrel caused 1,500 homes to briefly lose power Thursday morning in West Glendale, officials said.

Glendale Water & Power crews discovered the singed squirrel and short circuit just before 8:30 a.m. at San Fernando Road and Allen Avenue, city spokesman Tom Lorenz said.

Power was restored within about 20 minutes.
