High winds pushed a fire from place to place, eventually damaging an autobody shop Monday afternoon.
Firefighters say the owner of Performance Paint and Body at 4301 West 11th Street started the fire to burn debris. The 40-50 mph wind gusts pushed the fire to some vehicles and then into the east side of the building.
Employees who were inside were able to get out safely, and firefighters had the flames extinguished with about 15 minutes of their arrival.
Charges are possible against the owner, who was not supposed to be burning the debris.
This was one of eight wind-related fire calls within Pueblo County during a three-hour period. Four of those were brush fires, all of which are now contained.
