Squirrel Starts Fire at Los Alamos

From the July 2 Albuquerque (New Mexico) Journal

Nature seems to have it out for poor Los Alamos National Laboratory. Earlier today a squirrel short-circuited an electrical transformer at the lab’s Neutron Science Center, setting off a one-acre fire that attentive crews quickly doused, according to a statement just issued by lab officials.

No word on the fate of the squirrel.

One power line felled.
One more southwest wildfire.
One flash-fried squirrel.
