A wayward squirrel messing with an electrical wire above the J.C. Penney store at Bradford Square mall led to a small power outage this morning, said Marshall Kellow, engineering and operations manager for Hopkinsville Electric System.

The squirrel came in contact with electrical components above the shopping mall around 7 a.m., Kellow said. The outage affected some businesses on the south end of Fort Campbell Boulevard in Hopkinsville and lasted about 25 minutes, Kellow said.
