TWIN FALLS — The College of Southern Idaho‘s Twin Falls campus was closed starting Tuesday afternoon due to a power outage.

Idaho Power was working to resolve the issue, CSI spokeswoman Kimberlee LaPray wrote in an email to the Times-News.

The college’s Taylor Building remains open with limited services.

The power outage started at 10:12 a.m. and service was restored at 11:13 a.m., said Brad Bowlin, an Idaho Power spokesman. The outage was limited to the college campus.

Although power was restored to campus, CSI may have run into trouble restoring power to its individual buildings, Bowlin said.

LaPray said power was still down, as of 4:40 p.m., and Idaho Power crews were on campus.

Crews reported finding a dead squirrel beneath some power equipment near North College Road and Cheney Drive, Bowlin said, which caused a breaker trip.
