GREELEY, Colo. — Power was fully restored in Greeley by Thursday after multiple crews responded to a fire burning in the city on Tuesday afternoon. 

Greeley Fire Department said a "grass cover fire" burned along railroad tracks on 9th Avenue near 2nd Street on Tuesday. Smoke could be seen across town. 

As of 1:20 p.m. on Tuesday, the smoke plume had dissipated.

Greeley Fire said around 2:17 p.m. on Tuesday that crews were still on scene, and that power was out at some facilities and traffic signals downtown.

Xcel was working to restore power on Tuesday, and Greeley Fire said at the time could take several hours for power to return and crews to clear the scene.
