COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Firefighters extinguished two separate fires in the area of a Springs grocery store in the span of 12 hours.

Crews were first called to a small fire Monday night behind the King Soopers at Astrozon Boulevard and Hancock Expressway. The fire sparked just after 10 p.m. and was out within minutes.

Tuesday morning, the Colorado Springs Fire Department announced crews had again responded to a fire near the King Soopers.

Like the previous night, the fire was extinguished quickly. Firefighters warned despite the quick work, conditions are such at the moment that any fire could blow up within minutes.

“Reminder that the fire danger is high today and very dry conditions exist. Any fire can become large in a matter of minutes. Please be fire safe,” the fire department said.

No injuries were reported from either fire.
