COLORADO SPRINGS –  Friday night.Colorado Springs Fire is investigating after a fire broke out at an apartment building

“There were flames in the building, and smoking there was smoke coming out of the window, and then I realized oh wow. This was exactly what was necessary to prevent something getting out of hand,” Devin Buercklin said, he lives in the complex and says it started on the 2nd floor of the building.

The fire broke out around 10:30 Friday night.

Limited information was available overnight, but officials say it may have started in the kitchen of an apartment.

“I live on the third floor and it could have involved my life. So I am very grateful that everyone showed up like they did, in less than 20 minutes,” said Buercklin.
