“Large explosion” leads to grass fire in Colorado Springs; resident reports whole house shaking


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.– The Colorado Springs Fire Department has contained the one acre grass fire on Marlow Circle in Colorado Springs, Colo., just west of the Colorado Springs Airport.

The fire department says that fire appears to be smaller than originally estimated and has been knocked down and contained to a homeless camp in the area.

A FOX21 viewer had originally reached out to us saying that she heard a “huge explosion” that shook her house and that she could see flames in the area.
