Suspect charged with murder, arson after apartment fire in Colorado Springs

Enfield Apartments Fire

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- The suspect in a deadly Colorado Springs apartment fire has been identified and charged, according to Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD). CSPD says 20-year-old Trey Dove is responsible for starting the fire at the Enfield Apartments Sunday night.

Colorado Springs Fire Department (CSFD) say it took 30 firefighters to contain the fire on the third floor of the building, which they responded to Sunday around 7 p.m.

Police say a man was killed after jumping from the third floor of the building to escape the flames. Another person was sent to a local hospital to receive treatment for smoke inhalation.

Dove has been charged with first-degree murder and first-degree arson. He's set to make his first appearance in an El Paso County courtroom on Thursday, November 18.

Even though the fire was contained to a single apartment, other units did suffer smoke damage, displacing some residents. The Red Cross was on scene to help those affected Sunday night.
