A fire that broke out at a chemical depot in Pueblo around noon on Saturday is now out.

According to a press release from the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot, a fire had broken out at building 576 in the warehouse.

"The fire is not near the stockpile location," the press release says.

All of building 576 is gone - as well as building 581 with minimal damage to a third warehouse building at 42825 Highway 96.

As a precaution, electricity and gas were shut off in the warehouse area.

Pueblo Fire and several other agencies responded and quickly brought the fire under control.

The fire was 90 percent contained by Saturday evening, according to the depot.

Saturday afternoon, a spokesperson confirmed the fire was out.
