Apartment Fire

Colorado Springs fire investigators are working to determine the exact cause of a fire that displaced 17 people Saturday night.

The blaze was first reported around 9:30pm at the Citadel Village Apartments located at 913 Chelton Road. It took fire crews about 30 minutes to knock down the main body of the fire, which was completely under control in about an hour and a half.

At least two of apartments in the building were destroyed, and others suffered some smoke damage. Early estimates show damage to be around $60,000.

Firefighters say the cause appears to be accidential, but the investigation is continuing.
