FOUNTAIN, Colo. (KKTV) - No one was injured after an accidental shed fire spread to a home in Fountain late Thursday night.

Fountain firefighters responded to the area of Hibbard and Descendant to heavy smoke coming from a shed in a backyard around 11p.m. Thursday. The fire was reportedly so intense it spread to the home and caught it on fire.

“We actually had several units on scene. We had an engine on the other side of the block, the street over, that was attacking the fire from one side and we had an engine on the other side where the primary residence was attacking the fire from that side,” said Battalion Chief Nate Lenn of Fountain Fire Department.

The two people inside the home were not injured in the fire, although the residents are currently without a home. No animals were inside the home.

The cause is still under investigation, although firefighters say it was ruled accidental.
