FOUNTAIN, Colo. (KRDO) -- Several viewers reached out to KRDO Saturday, saying they could see smoke from highways in the Fountain area. The cause of the smoke was a vehicle fire -- something that Fountain Police now say appears to be suspicious.

Around 11:30 a.m., officers were called to the 6900 block of Bandley Drive near the Camping World. At the scene, officers found multiple vehicles on fire near a storage unit.

Initially, Colorado State Patrol told us three vehicles were reported ablaze. In an update later Saturday, Fountain Police said a total of seven vehicles were damaged -- four RVs and three passenger vehicles -- although it's not clear how many were specifically set on fire.

Police say the cause of the fire does appear to be suspicious.
