Power has been restored after about 4,500 customers from 3300 N. University Avenue to Bulldog Avenue in Provo were left without power this afternoon.
Provo Power crews reported a bird came in contact with electrical wires and was then electrocuted at about 4:15 p.m.
The bird caught on fire and when it fell, it started a grass fire by the poles, said Kat Linford, Provo Power spokeswoman.
Power was restored at about 5 p.m.
More information will be released as it is made available.
