Colorado Springs firefighters are working to extinguish a fire alongside Monument Creek near Interstate 25 and Bijou Street. 

Crews responded to the fire at about 11 a.m. and are continuing to smother the fire with dirt and spray it with the fire hose.

It appears the fire is in a homeless camp about 20 feet from the trail along the creek. Smoke is visible from the interstate and bridge on Bijou Street.

Firefighters were not able to confirm the cause of the fire.
