A fire that sparked Thursday in a Fort Carson training field was 100% contained Monday, post officials said.

It burned 35 acres on the south end of the post, east of Camp Red Devil. Smoke still might be visible, said Fort Carson spokesman Eric Parris.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Crews from El Paso County Wildland Fire, a mostly volunteer group, responded. No injuries or structure damage were reported.
