FOUNTAIN, Colo. — A shelter-in-place was issued for a Fountain neighborhood Wednesday morning.

According to the City of Fountain, the Fountain Police Department was serving a warrant at a house on Berry Farm Road, just south of Fountain-Fort Carson High School.

The police department was asking people to avoid the area, which was updated to a shelter-in-place order from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office in a Peak Alert sent at 9:25 a.m.

After about an hour the shelter-in-place for the area was lifted. It is unclear if any arrests were made at this time.
