Just before 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning Colorado Springs Fire Department was dispatched to a fire in between Tejon and Nevada in an alley. The dumpster fire was put out quickly but the structure did sustain smoke damage inside. There was also heat and fire damage to the outside of the structure, crews added. Crews moved the dumpster away from the building to try and minimize damage. Captain Carrick Patterson from the Colorado Springs Fire Department told 11 News “The electrical components are right next to that area where the fire was. They heated up and melted. So, there’s some electrical utility damage done to the building.” He also added that one firefighter suffered a minor injury, and one other person was transported to the hospital. There is no official cause yet.
