COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado — The Colorado Springs Fire Department is responding to a structure fire at 2540 S. Academy Blvd. The structure is located near Giberson Park in southeast Colorado Springs.

According to CSFD engine 11 was the first to respond to the scene. When they arrived, the fire was coming out of the roof on the south end of the commercial structure.

Firefighters on the scene immediately called for a second alarm due to the size of the fire. The building consists of 12-15 units, but crews were able to contain the fire to a single unit; smoke did manage to get into some of the units, however.
