Firefighters from Colorado Springs are now investigating a blaze that occurred overnight at an abandoned home in southern Colorado.
A residence on Bijou, close to the intersection of I-25 and Spruce, is the location of this event.
At least three hours passed during which access to the area was denied to motorists. 11 News was told by firefighters in Colorado Springs that they received the call about a dumpster fire at approximately 3:15 in the morning. It was discovered to be a fire at a home that had been abandoned once they arrived on the scene.
According to firefighters who spoke with 11 News, fires that burn overnight are still a problem. Because the windows and doors of the residence in question were covered with plywood, it was impossible for firefighters to enter the structure. Because of this, the property was considered to be “boarded up.”
This fire did not result in any injuries to any people. The fire is still being looked into by the investigators.
11 News will provide an update to the item whenever we have further information.
