About 9,300 Dominion Power customers are without power in Arlington because of a squirrel.

Dominion Spokesperson Jim Norvelle says a squirrel got into an area of the substation "where it wasn't supposed to be," causing a number of different circuits to go out.

Norvelle says those circuits are being restored one by one and they expect all customers to be back in service by 7 p.m.
