COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Firefighters made quick work of a brush fire in southwest Colorado Springs on Saturday.

The fire started behind homes in the 1200 block of Winterhall Point just south of Quail Lake at about 4 p.m. Firefighters were on scene in about two minutes and put out the fire soon after.

The blaze burned right up along a fence line. Crews were forced to knock part of the fence down, but they kept the fire from reaching any homes.

Firefighters also had to deal with agitated wasps as they worked on mopping up the fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
