High winds on Sunday fanned a fire that reportedly was started by gunfire at the Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex on Fort Carson, just southwest of the intersection of I-25 and Hwy. 116. The fire spread to the south and west, approaching businesses located on Charter Oak Ranch Road just north of Exit 128 on I-25. Fountain Fire Chief Darin Anstine and his crew were on hand to protect those businesses.
