At the height of the outage, which started at 9 a.m., Xcel Energy spokesperson Tom Henley says 2,850 customers were without power. By mid-morning crews had restored power to about 65 percent of those customers. The original outage went from the corner of Downing Street and 20th Avenue to 14th Street and Lawrence Street.
Close to 3 p.m. a little more than 100 customers remained without power.
The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, located at 1570 Grant Street, lost power Thursday meaning Medicaid clients could not call the state to ask questions.
Clients with concerns were asked to contact their local department of social services.
Henley says the source of the outage was located in a vault underground. It took crews a while to be able to get vehicles on the ground moved in order to gain proper access.
All of the repairs are expected to be done by early evening Thursday.
(Editor's Note: 9NEWS erroneously reported that the outage spanned from North Broadway to Ogden Street and from West Colfax Avenue to 27th Avenue based on information from the Denver Police Department.)
