A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
Firefighters responded to a report of a house fire in the 2600 block of Purgatory drive around 3:30 Friday afternoon.
Fire investigators say the house is a complete loss with damage estimated in the tens of thousands of dollars. The three people who live in the home were not home at the time.
Springs fire investigators say the cause of the fire has been determined to be improper disposal of fireplace ashes. That's a problem they say they see too often around this time of year.
