Neighbors saw white flash


Firefighters said an great horned owl caused a power outage after landing on a power line along Salsipuedes Street.

The line snapped and the owl was electrocuted.

Neighbors for miles around said they saw a white flash.

The power was rerouted and returned in about a minute, but crews kept one block near Victoria Avenue closed until the dangling line was fixes.
