OREGON CITY, Ore. -- The power has been restored for thousands of customers after a power outage in Clackamas County Saturday morning, officials said.

More than 5,000 Portland General Electric customers lost power when a piece of equipment malfunctioned.

Crews initially thought a squirrel had gotten into a substation and caused a transformer to blow. But as it turned out, the squirrel was not the cause of the outage, PGE officials said.
