COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) – Another fire at a homeless camp briefly got out of control, requiring city firefighters to extinguish it.
The Colorado Springs Fire Department tweeted around 12:15 p.m. Sunday that crews were at Platte and Chelton on a grass ire. The fire wasn’t big but was creating a lot of smoke, the fire department said.
The fire was the second reported at a homeless camp in Colorado Springs this weekend. Crews responded to a fire next to a bank near Jet Wing and Academy early Saturday morning after a warming fire got out of control.
Fire danger remains elevated in the region due to a dry early winter.
