A small grass fire was extinguished on Colorado 115 near Gate 1 at Fort Carson.

The fire, about 100 feet wide, originated outside of the post, said Fort Carson spokeswoman Brandy Gill. It migrated over the fence and onto the post but was stamped out within an hour.

Fort Carson and the Southwest Highway 115 Volunteer Fire Department responded.
