A strong cold front will move through Southern Colorado on Tuesday. It will bring much colder temperatures (especially in the afternoon), strong wind, & a few rain and snow showers. Light accumulations and poor visibility possible for a time by late afternoon and evening north of Colorado Springs and south/southwest of Pueblo. Bottomline, your Tuesday will feel a lot different than the past two days. Be prepared...
Authorities say an unattended candle that had been lit in a candle shop sparked a fire that destroyed a commercial building in the Old Colorado City historic section of Colorado Springs.
The confirmation came Thursday from Colorado Springs Fire Investigator Gary Green.
Earlier authorities said they ended up leveling the historic building that had been gutted by the fire yesterday. Lieutenant Neil Luehring of the Colorado Springs Fire Department said the structure was dangerously unstable.
The blaze gutted four businesses that were housed in the building, including the candle shop, and caused an estimated $3 million in damage.
