A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late Friday morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later Friday afternoon. Locations that are higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to them seeing cooler temperatures. So, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less amounts and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
Colorado Springs fire investigators are looking into what caused a house fire just before 7 p.m., Monday night.
We spoke to the daughter of the homeowner, she says she went to the home to see what state it was left in after the tenants had left.
The door was open and smoke and flames could be seen from where she was standing. She called for help right away.
Fire crews say the fire was small, no one was injured and the home is not a total loss.
The daughter of the homeowner says she doesn't believe the tenant had anything to do with the fire, but is suspicious that the front door was open.
Officials are hoping to be able to tell if the fire was intentionally set or not.. They should have some answers Tuesday morning.
