Fire sparked in homeless camp on Colorado Springs east side

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

A homeless camp fire sparked a grass fire Saturday morning near Academy Blvd. and Pikes Peak Ave.

The Colorado Springs Fire Department said smoke aided by wind briefly caused a traffic concern. The wind also pushed the flames towards near-by storage units, but no structures were damaged.

The CSFD said one homeless camper was transported to a hospital with burns, but they were not life-threatening.
