2-Alarm House Fire CSFD, COLO.
Colorado Springs Fire Department responded to a report of a house on fire with the sound of an explosion in the 1400 block of Delaware today, March 23, 2012. No residents were home at the time of the fire. First-in fire unit called it a working structure fire before getting on scene due to the plume of smoke in the area. Heavy fire was visible on the outside of the home upon arrival. The structure fire was contained in a timely manner and the Red Cross is offering assistance to the residents at this time. Interesting enough, just months ago at this residence, they had a vehicle fire in the backyard. A driver lost control of her vehicle traveling over 100mph and plowed through the fence landing on the gazebo, just feet from the house. The vehicle then caught fire. This house fire is under investigation by Colorado Springs Fire Investigators.
