FBI investigating fibercut in Washington State

Hmm, not something you normally see in reports about fiber cuts.

The problem was caused by the failure of a fiber optic line in Stanwood,
about 60 miles to the south in Snohomish County, Qwest spokesman Michael
Dunne said. Company personnel were trying to determine why the cable

Service was restored by early Wednesday afternoon.

Calls to Bellingham police about the failure were referred to the FBI.

"It's a pending investigation. Beyond that we can't comment," said FBI
spokesman Ray Lauer at regional headquarters in Seattle.
