In this paper, we establish a large deviation principle for the nonlinear one-dimensional stochastic heat equation driven by a Gaussian noise which is white in time and which has the covariance of a fractional Brownian motion with Hurst parameter $H\in (\frac{1}{4},\frac{1}{2})$ in the space variable.
