Beaver Blamed For Power Outage

A Beaver caused a power outage yesterday afternoon in the Placerville and Sawpit area. Crews discovered three downed power lines. The Beave chewed through a large cottonwood sending it crashing down on three power lines near the river. Restoration was slow and steady due to the weather, terrain and wading across the river for San Miguel Power crews. Power was restored after 4 hours.
