A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
Heavy smoke was visible in east El Paso County after a barn caught fire Thursday afternoon.
Firefighters say the barn was already engulfed in flames when they arrived on scene just after 2:20 p.m., and moving towards the nearby house. The four people inside were able to get out safely.
One person was treated for smoke inhalation. There were no other reported injuries to residents or firefighters.
The barn was completely destroyed. The flames did spread to the attic of the home, but there's no word on the extent of damage.
At this time, there is no word on what caused the fire.
The home is located on Tackhouse Road, south of Falcon.
