Officials at the Los Alamos Dept. of Public Utilities reported that a possible animal contact and a faulty fuse caused two power outages Sunday and Monday in the same White Rock neighborhood.
The first outage occurred on Sunday night from 9:25 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. when an overhead fuse was discovered blown, a condition typically caused by an animal contact. The second power outage, on Monday from 1:20 p.m. – 2:10 p.m., was caused at the same overhead location.
Electric linemen on the scene determined that the replacement fuse was flawed. Approximately 200 customers were affected on Rover, Kendall Dr., Koleen Ct, Kimberley Lane, Jeffrey St., Kris Court, Paul Place, Todd Loop, and Glennview St.
