Firefighters from at least 7 El Paso County Fire Departments responded to a fire at a 3-story house at 7155 Juniper Road in Black Forest Friday night. The fire began burning shortly after 8:00 p.m. and quickly took over the entire house. Fire fighters are calling it a total loss. Crews say containing the fire was a challenge because there was no fire hydrant near the house, requiring them to bring water in by truck.
The owners of the house were not at home when the fire started and there were no injuries. Investigators do not yet know what caused the fire.
