Four hospitalized after apartment fire in Colorado Springs


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Four people have been hospitalized from an apartment fire in Colorado Springs, including one child.

The fire was first reported around 3 p.m. Sunday at the Montebello Gardens apartments in the area of Academy Boulevard and Austin Bluffs Parkway.

CSFD said it appears the fire started in one apartment and smoke spread to several others. A CSFD spokesperson estimated 12 units are affected. Four people were taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.

Some people had to be evacuated via ladders because they could not make it out of the apartment building without help from firefighters.

There’s no word yet on the cause of the fire.
