Traffic lights at most intersections south of Losson Road, in Cheektowaga, are out of service this morning.

A squirrel got into a transformer around Losson Road around 6:50 a.m. this morning, causing it to blow. Traffic lights at intersections including Losson and Union Roads, Losson Road and Towers Boulevard and Union and French Roads are not working.

Cheektowaga Police Assistant Chief James Speyer said the town is working to get generators for each light. He said he does not yet know when the lights will work again today.
