COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado Springs Fire Department put out 2 fires, both at the Windtree Apartment complex and just hours apart, late Wednesday night.

Firefighters arrived to the first fire around 10 P.M. Wednesday night, and the fire was kept to just a single apartment. No one was injured.

However, just hours later, firefighters were called back to the same apartment complex for the same fire.

When firefighters arrived the second time, they saw fire on top of the roof. After arrival, they were able to bring the second fire back under control just after 1 A.M.

The Colorado Springs Police Department later said Andrew Roebuck, a tenant, was arrested for 1st-degree Arson in connection to the fire.

No injuries have been reported at this time, and the cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
