COLORADO SPRINGS — Several people called in reports of smoke in the area of North Cheyenne Cañon Park on Thursday afternoon. Colorado Springs Fire crews quickly responded to the area.
Once they arrived on scene, crews described the fire as less than an acre in size, and burning grass and brush in an area of thick vegetation. They were able to contain the fire a short time later.
CSFD called for support from the Colorado Springs Police Department to block traffic and make room for emergency vehicles.
