Gazette Premium Content Investigators look into overnight house fire

By Andrea Sinclair Published: September 3, 2013

Fire Department investigators are trying to figure out what started a late-night fire in a northeast Colorado Springs home Monday.

The blaze was limited to a couch in the main room and firefighters had it under control within minutes, CSFD spokeswoman Sunny Smaldino said.

"The first engine arrived at 11:46 p.m. and the fire was under control by 11:54 p.m., so it didn't have a chance to damage the rest of house, aside from some smoke," Smaldino said. The fire sparked around 11:40 p.m. at a home on the 5000 block of Wagon Master Drive, near Oro Blanco Drive and north of North Carefree Circle.

No one was injured.

The cause of the fire has not been released yet.
