Firefighters stamped out a second house fire in southwest Colorado Springs Friday morning.

The blaze was reported about 8:45 a.m. at a three-level home at 2012 Oak Way, just west of The Broadmoor hotel, the Fire Department tweeted.

Flames originated between the lower and main living area of one of the units.

A video from the Fire Department shows firefighters on the roof with smoke emanating into the sky.

Fire crews battled a two-alarm fire at a home in the Broadmoor Bluffs neighborhood earlier Friday. No one was injured but the home on Wedgewood Court was charred by 20 to 30-foot tall flames.

American Red Cross volunteers "provided support for immediate needs and temporary lodging" to four adults, the organization tweeted.
