COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - An early morning house fire in southwest Colorado Springs is now under control.

A neighbor called 911 around 5:30 Wednesday morning after seeing flames shooting out of a nearby home.

“The smoke was coming from the roof and the fire was coming from the attic space,” said Lt. Joey Buttenwieser with the Colorado Springs Fire Department.

Buttenwieser said it took crews some time to find the exact location of the fire in the house, but once they did, firefighters were able to quickly get the upper hand.

“They just called the fire under control, and we’re at, approximately I think, 30 minutes into the fire,” he told 11 News.

The home is under construction, and no one is currently living in it.

The home is located in the Broadmoor Bluffs neighborhood.
