Firefighters respond to abandoned car that caught on fire at Colorado Springs gas station


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The Colorado Springs Fire Department (CSFD) is investigating after an abandoned car caught on fire while in the parking lot of a gas station.

First responders received the call around 1:49 Saturday afternoon and responded to 3945 Palmer Park Boulevard. Nobody was in the car when first responders arrived.
