Top Stories

COLORADO SPRINGS —Saturday, the Colorado Springs Fire Department (CSFD) responded to a fire located near Academy Boulevard that resulted in major damage to at least two buildings and eight living units.

CSFD arrived at 6741 Dublin Loop around noon Saturday. Shortly after arriving, the call was dubbed a 2-alarm fire.

According to Desert Fire, a two-alarm fire “summons more trucks, with more firefighters, but more specifically, it calls for a hazardous materials vehicle and a support vehicle called a ‘supply shop.’ These units provide additional equipment such as oxygen tanks. After a 2 alarm fire call goes out, there can potentially be up to 13 emergency vehicles on the scene of the fire.”

Several FOX21 viewers sent in pictures of heavy smoke.

It took over an hour for the fire to be completely put out. As of 1:30 p.m. Saturday, no injuries were reported; firefighters did not know the cause of the fire.
