TINICUM TWP., Pa. (WPVI) -- An unwelcome visitor is being blamed for causing a power outage for 1500 customers at a power substation in Tinicum Township, Pennsylvania.

An official from Met Ed says crews are working to fix the problem that began around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The incident also caused several small fires at residences. Traffic lights in the area were also out.

Crews are hoping to have the power restored by noon.
