Apartment Fire

By  | 

Clothing placed too close to a furnace is being blamed for a fire that charred an apartment in Colorado Springs Friday morning.

The fire broke out around 7:30 a.m. at the Palomar Lodge
Apartments on North Nevada. Three fire crews found the apartment fully engulfed in flames, but brought the blaze quickly under control.

A woman who lives in the unit told firefighters she spotted the flames shortly after her husband left for work.

Damage is estimated at $3,500 dollars. One dog died in the blaze, but no one else was hurt.
