If you're a downtown resident who lost power or had yours flicker on and off this morning, blame the squirrels.

Well, one particular squirrel in general who got into a substation, burned up some wires and knocked out power to a combined 14 square blocks of peninsular homes and businesses.

ABC News 4 has the better brief on the damage that should all be repaired by 3 p.m.
