Squirrel causes power outage on Milwaukee's south side

MILWAUKEE -- We Energies crews were called to W. Morgan Ave. between 27th and 32nd for a power outage affecting 71 customers.

We're told a squirrel walked across a power line, and its tail touched a live equipment. Crews started work on the power outage around 9:30 a.m., and restored power around 1:00 p.m.
