FOUNTAIN, Colo. — The Fountain Fire Department worked to tamp down a small brush fire (less than one acre in size) that was called in at about 3:30 a.m. on Thursday morning.
It started in the area of Hwy 85 and Comanche Village in Fountain Creek Park, and was burning among cottonwood trees.
According to fire crews, heavy smoke and flames were visible when they arrived on scene. The fire was approximately one mile West of Hwy 85 which, crews said, made it difficult to access.
A spokesperson noted the mild weather conditions on Thursday morning made it easier for crews to get this fire under control quickly.
The fire is controlled and contained, the spokesperson confirmed.
Firefighters from Security Fire Department, Stratmoor Hills Fire Department, Fort Carson Fire Department, and Hanover Fire Department responded as well.
No roads were closed and no structures threatened.
