Power outage hits Redlands, Fruita
An Xcel Energy transmission line was knocked out Saturday afternoon, causing several neighborhoods west of Grand Junction to lose power for a few hours.
Xcel officials couldn’t be reached late Saturday, but Grand Valley Power President Bill Rooks said Xcel’s transmission line feeds into his cooperative’s substation, causing some of his customers in Fruita and Glade Park to be without power for a short time.
Power in some neighborhoods in the Redlands also went out about 3:30 p.m. Residents there reported that it came back on about 5 p.m.
