CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (CBS4)- Firefighters from several fire departments rushed to put out a three-alarm fire at a strip mall in Castle Rock Friday night.

Firefighters from several different agencies rushed to the strip mall at 725 N. Wilcox in Castle Rock just after 9 p.m. Friday where a three-alarm fire was burning.

“When our units arrived they did find heavy smoke coming from the building and requested additional help,” said Castle Rock Fire & Rescue Chief Art Morales.

Firefighters from Castle Rock, South Metro, Larkspur and Franktown joined in the fire fight. There were 60 firefighters with 25 units on scene.

The fire was contained to one business but there was smoke damage to the surrounding four businesses.

“The fire has been contained to the business of origin which appears to be a bike shop but there was smoke damage to the adjoining businesses as well,” said Morales.

The cause of the fire is being investigated. The amount of damage is still being assessed. Although the fire was contained to one store, several other businesses suffered smoke damage.
