COLORADO SPRINGS – 10-people were evacuated from their apartment units after flames broke out in the basement in what may be the laundry area of an apartment complex early Tuesday morning.

Colorado Springs firefighters were called to the units at about 5:00 a.m. and when they arrived, smoke was coming out of the basement of the Corona Village Apartments complex. They found a small fire downstairs and the flames were extinguished very quickly. Everyone evacuated had to wait until smoke could be cleared out of the building before they could return to their units.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the blaze is under investigation.
