    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.

    By the time a pumper truck and a bush truck arrived, nearby residents had doused the flames.

    "This identical incident has happened on the same pole one or two times a year for the past several years," Driver said.

    Each time, firefighters find a dead, burned squirrel at the base of the utility pole, he said.

    Sort of an elaborate BBQ. Well done.
    I have eaten squirrel and it is good. Can't you see the fire chief showing up with a BBQ fork and some A1 sauce?

    Aaawww, that makes me very sad :( I have squirrels in my backyard and they are my pets. They even come up and bang on the glass door when they want to be fed. Guess they know a sucker when they see one. There should be some way to put a baffle on that pole to keep this from happening again.
