Lightning sparks fire near I-25 and Interquest Parkway Sunday night


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- A fire burning off I-25 and Interquest Parkway is out after crews responded Sunday evening.

In total, the blaze scorched roughly two acres. Lightning struck a tree in the area and the wind pushed the fire east into nearby brush. Fire crews were concerned about structures nearby as the flames pushed closer, but they were able to contain the fire in time and protect businesses in the area.

The fire caused traffic trouble on I-25 Sunday night with smoke visible.

We have a crew at the scene waiting to talk to officials, we'll update this story as we learn more.
