One squirrel causes $300K in damages to building Published: April 13, 2014

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Officials say a wayward squirrel caused about $300,000 in damage to an eastern Indiana community center set to open in June.

Fort Wayne Parks Department officials say the squirrel got into the electrical equipment of the building in McMillen Park last week, causing a power surge that damaged the heating and air conditioning systems and some parts of the boiler system.

The squirrel didn't survive.
