CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo. (KKTV) - The Big Bad Wolf couldn't have done it better -- fierce winds in Teller County toppled a tiny house outside Cripple Creek and blew the structure down the road.

The house landed on its side in the middle of a field, its path littered with rain boots, suitcases, and other debris. Firefighters were able to rescue the one person and two cats living in the home. No injuries were reported.

An approximate speed for wind gusts in the Cripple Creek area was not available at the time of this writing.
