Picture of cat chasing a rat in some 15kv switchgear. I guess they did not read the Arc flash labels :)

So did the service drop?

Kind of curious if something tripped and this is how it was found? Need the Paul Harvey, rest of the story....

This happens about 5 years ago. The switchgear door was left open. I did trip the upstream breaker and caused minor damage to the switchgear. Plant was down for about 4-hours to clean up the mess. The Electricans that cleaned up the mess didn't really like the smell of fried cat :)

Well, I've got kids, and so I like for them watch the classics when they're on. I was just passing through the room...
