PUEBLO, Colo. (KKTV) - Fireworks in Pueblo sparked a brush fire behind a Pueblo business early Monday morning.

Police say witnesses saw two women lighting fireworks on North Hudson, then running away when the fire started. Firefighters were able to knock out the small blaze before it damaged any structures, though an overhead power line had some damage.

The incident should serve as a reminder of the current fire danger in Pueblo. The city is under fire restrictions, which includes fireworks.
