Now for the Teeny-Tiny Arson Investigator

No, really, sometimes you just can't make this stuff up:

Once again, a squirrel clambering onto a power line has been blamed for a brush fire in this border town north of Oroville, Wash.

Firefighters were summoned Monday after a squirrel scrambled up a Fortis Inc. utility pole, got zapped and landed in flames on some dry brush outside a fruit packing business, Fire Chief Ross Driver said.

Rodents... a worldwide power grid scourge. Whodathunkit?
