FOUNTAIN, COLORADO — The Fountain Fire Department responded to a structure fire near C & S Rd. and Link Rd. Monday evening. The intersection is located east of Pelican Park in the Fountain Valley area.

According to Lisa Schnieder the Public Information Officer for the City of Fountain, a total of four agencies responded to the scene.

Schneider told us two trucks initially on the scene had trouble reaching the fire as rain and mud made the approach difficult for fire trucks.

The City of Fountain had to call in trucks to lay rocks down on the road for fire trucks to begin attacking the fire.

No one was injured as a result of the fire and one dog was rescued by fire crews at the scene.

It is unclear what caused the fire or how many structures were lost. Crews will remain on scene to monitor hot spots throughout the night.

This is a developing story.
