KISSIMMEE, Fla. – A rogue raccoon jumped the fence of a Kissmimee electrical substation Tuesday morning, knocking out power to 2,844 customers of Kissimmee Utility Authority for an hour. 

The furry troublemaker scrambled onto a 13,200-volt breaker inside the utility’s Airport Substation at 5:01 a.m, causing three primary feeder lines to fail.
