Squirrel Starts Fire at Los Alamos

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Nature seems to have it out for poor Los Alamos National Laboratory. Earlier today a squirrel short-circuited an electrical transformer at the lab’s Neutron Science Center, setting off a one-acre fire that attentive crews quickly doused, according to a statement just issued by lab officials.

No word on the fate of the squirrel.
