A small brush fire caused power outages for southern Weld County near 168th Avenue and the area around Weld County Road 2 and Weld County Road 31 in the outskirts of Brighton.

About 2,500 United Power members were without power from 3:28 to 4:32 p.m.

At the same time, no open fires are allowed in unincorporated Adams County, due to extremely dry conditions, said Adams County Sheriff Michael McIntosh.
