A 5-year old boy injured in a fire at the Hill Park Apartments on E. Pikes Peak Blvd, has died.
The boy, along with an unidentified adult woman, were transported to Memorial Hospital after the Colorado Springs Fire Department extinguished a fire at the complex. The boy was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
The adult woman suffered non life threatening injuries. We are still waiting to learn if the woman was the boys mother or caregiver.
According to fire officials, a mattress in the bedroom burned, but the fire didn't spread to the rest of the apartment.
CSFD is investigating the cause of the fire and an autopsy is on the boy could be released as early as Monday. If anyone has information on this incident, you're asked to call police.
