A camper trailer caught fire in the Colorado City area at approximately 2:15 p.m. on June 22. The Rye Fire Protection District and Deputy Steven Chavez responded. Chavez observed broken windows and burn markings upon his arrival. Photographs were taken.

The family who owned the trailer had been camping in Huerfano ‘County for Father’s Day weekend. On the trip back the hitch broke and the camper detached. The family had the camper towed to the spot where it caught fire.

The fire occurred when a good Samaritan offered to weld the hitch. The fire occurred during the welding process. The value of the trailer was $11,500. It appeared to be totally destroyed. The welder and the owner exchanged insurance information. No charges were filed.

On June 22 in Pueblo West at about 11:45 a.m. Deputy Jordan Lira reported an individual by telephone in regard to a fraud. The reporting party indicated a charge had been made for $158 from a company they had not heard of.
