COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– Fire investigators are working to determine what caused a fire near a homeless camp in Colorado Springs. The blaze ignited a grass fire and burned on Sunday.

It’s a growing problem with nearly 300 fires at homeless camps in the Colorado Springs area last year. Those fires are becoming a bigger concern with freezing temperatures.
