PUEBLO COUNTY, Colo. (KRDO) -- CDOT reports fire crews are investigating a fire that happened Tuesday afternoon along northbound I-25 between Exit 114 Young Hollow and Pinon Rest Area north of Pueblo.

Gayle Perez with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office says the three small fires happened between MM 114 and MM 116. Pueblo West, Hanover County Sheriff Emergency Services, and Pueblo County Sheriff's Office all responded to the fire.

According to emergency dispatch traffic, crews found multiple "small fires" without an exact number based on the scanner traffic.

According to a KRDO crew at the scene, one car was rear-ended. The driver of that vehicle was taken to the hospital. However, they do not have serious injuries.

Fire crews are still working on determining what caused the small fire.
