Car fire on Old Stage Road causes visible smoke plume
Firefighters were able to quickly get the upper hand on a vehicle fire that got out of control.
A driver was on Old Stage Road Sunday morning about 2 miles southwest of The Broadmoor when their vehicle caught fire. The flames quickly spread beyond the car, burning about one-tenth of an acre.
The El Paso County Sheriff's Office confirms the fire was contained soon after firefighters arrived, but not before several viewers reported the alarming sight of a smoke plume rising from the Springs' southwest side.
Fire danger continues to be high in Colorado Springs and elsewhere in southern Colorado. If you do see smoke, call the fire department right away. A quick response can keep fires from getting out of control.
