STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Payne County officials say a squirrel is to blame for a brownout at a county administration building.

The Stillwater News Press reports (http://bit.ly/1s7NUoz ) that the power problems effected air conditioning, telephones, backup power and the alarm system.

Officials say the squirrel got caught in an air conditioning unit on the roof of the building late Saturday or early Sunday.

The backup power and telephone lines have been fixed. Doors were propped open Monday in an attempt to get fresh air into the building.

Repairs for the damage cost around $2,500.
