A humble squirrel went on a blaze of glory on Tuesday last, after interfering with high-voltage cables, roasting itself, and causing a power outage that affected over 45,000 in the north area of San Diego, California.

The squirrel’s actions shut down an electrical substation yesterday afternoon, local time. Power was restored shortly afterwards, and the squirrel was granted its own Viking funeral.
