COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - More than 30 Colorado Springs firefighters responded to a fire at a home Saturday morning.

It happened at a duplex near Garden of the Gods Road and North Chestnut Street in Colorado Springs. Firefighters say the flames came from the backside of the home.

CSFD Lt. Fred Varnell tells 11 News three people were displaced because of the fire, and CSFD reached out to Red Cross to help the residents.

Fire crews were able to get the flames out within about an hour.

The cause of the fire has not yet been identified.

“We’re not sure if it started outside and then came in or if there was some problem inside the structure itself. We haven’t determined that yet. Investigators will do that,” says Varnell.
