Training exercises likely sparked a Thursday afternoon fire on Fort Carson, although the cause is under investigation, a spokeswoman said.
The fire began mid-afternoon in a training area on the southeast side of Fort Carson, burning 40 acres by about 2 p.m., said Dani Johnson, Fort Carson spokeswoman. Crews created a 980-acre box around the fire to contain it.
An overnight home invasion on Fort Carson sent one person to the hospital, Fort Carson officials said.
The resident fired a gun and was injured during the incident, which happened about 1 a.m. in the Sioux Village housing area, according to a news release. The victim is in stable condition at Evans Army Community Hospital, but is it unclear how they were injured.
No suspect information has been released.
"All indications at this time are that this is an isolated incident and there does not appear to be a threat to the community," according to the release.
