Fire has destroyed 2 homes in the Cheyenne Mountain Estates mobile home park. Two other homes are badly burned. The fire is now contained, and crews will watch for hot spots throughout the evening.
The fire started Sunday afternoon at a mobile home on Piute Road. That's off Highway 115 and Pawnee Road, near Fort Carson in El Paso County. Several agencies responded to the fire.
When crews first got to the fire, low water pressure from the hydrants kept them from using their hoses, so they had to bring in the water on tender trucks to fight the fires.
"There's a huge water pressure issue here so that kind of hampered the beginning of our operation," says Fort Carson Assistant Fire Chief Steve Conner.
Crews report no serious injuries from the fire. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
