COLORADO SPRINGS –  Two people escaped a late night fire near UCCS and are now without a home.

Heavy smoke was visible from the burning home on Maplewood Drive late Sunday.

Neighbors said they heard explosions at the same time the homeowner was cooking on the back deck.

As the two people at the home got out safely, others worked to move cars out of the way for the fire department to access the area.

There’s no word on the extent of the damage or an exact cause.
