CSFD extinguishes multiple grass fires near Research Pkwy. and Austin Bluffs Pkwy.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- The Colorado Springs Fire Department (CSFD) responded to multiple grass fires west of N. Powers Blvd Tuesday afternoon.

Officials first reported the grass fires at 12:32 p.m. near Research and Austin Bluffs. Just under an hours later, CSFD said the fires were out.

Both CSFD and Colorado Springs Police said the fire are under investigation and are considered suspicious. Police officers were called to the scene to assist in the investigation when it was determined the fires were suspicious.

There were no evacuations or injuries as a result of the fires.

CSPD did detain a person in connection to the fires. According to CSPD, they were unable to gather enough evidence to arrest the individual. CSPD says that is why they are asking if anyone has surveillance footage or was in the area at that time if they would contact Crime Stoppers or the Police Department.
