RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Ohio — First Energy is working a major power outage in the eastern suburbs of Cleveland.

The company is reporting thousands are without power and traffic lights are not working in Richmond Heights, South Euclid and Euclid.

A spokesman said it appears a squirrel got into a substation, which caused the outage.

Police in the area want to remind drivers that traffic lights become four-way stops when they are not working.
