Firefighters quickly extinguished a small grass fire behind an apartment complex Friday night.

The Colorado Springs Fire Department responded the 2500 block of Verde Drive, near Fountain and Circle, around 8 p.m. on reports of a fire in a field.

Firefighters tell us because of the windy and dry conditions the fire tripled in size. In total it was 100 feet by 25 feet.
