Updated On: Jan 02 2014 12:54:33 PM CST
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.
