A squirrel caused a brief power outage for an estimated 3,500 National Grid customers yesterday.
The power failed about 9 a.m., caused by a squirrel on the lines on Church Street, said Amy Atwood, spokeswoman for National Grid.
Power was restored to most customers by 9:30 a.m., and to all customers by 2:40 p.m., Ms. Atwood said.
