CLACKAMAS, Ore. (KOIN 6) — An issue at a substation was responsible for a brief power outage in Clackamas County, not a squirrel as originally thought.

More than 7300 customers were without power early Saturday afternoon, PGE officials said. A squirrel was suspected but it turned out to be the substation.

All power was restored around 2 p.m.
