COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- The Colorado Springs Fire Department says crews responded to two fires within 24 hours of each other, both started by fireworks.

Firefighters are reminding people that fireworks are illegal in Colorado Springs and in unincorporated El Paso County.

Crews says a shed was completely destroyed Friday evening after a fire started by fireworks. Power lines were damaged overhead as well due to heat from the fire.

Another fire happened when someone set off fireworks inside a vehicle, according to CSFD.

    1. You do realize that the fireworks that were started in the car were done by someone that was out to do damage!! Probably a BLM “Protester”

  1. Well since nothing is done about the fireworks this is what you get. When they allow firework stands to sell them, this is what you get.

  2. This is the City just pushing the “anti fireworks” propaganda. Both appear to be intentionally set. They could have used matches and gasoline just the same. Small fire works set off in the middle of the street are zero risk. Maybe an injury but that’s personal responsibility (yes there is such a thing). By making fire works illegal it makes it worse-it makes people try to hide so they are lighting them in alley ways, fields, and open space for fear of a ticket. Instead of promoting education and proper use – the City has gone down the road of attempting to instill fear and ignorance..

  3. Well knowing them they will blame a cigarette like they do everything else. Its what causes ever fire in that city.
