Three fire departments extinguished a fire at a residence off of Old Highway 44 in Bernalillo on Tuesday, according to Bernalillo Fire Department Fire Chief Mike Legendre. There were no injuries.

“There is reasonable suspicion that arson was the cause of the fire,” Legendre said.

The fire started in the front yard and porch and extended into the attic. The roof’s integrity was compromised after personnel arrived on the scene, who then deployed exterior and defensive operations.

An anonymous source said that there was a small apartment on the end of the building. Two residents were there at the time with their dog, and they all made it out safely, according to the source.

The Sandoval County Fire Rescue and Corrales Fire Department assisted the Bernalillo Fire Department in putting out the flames.

“It was a hot day, up to 105 degrees. The crews worked hard for a few hours to extinguish the fire and put out all hot spots,” reads a Facebook post from SCFR.

Legendre also acknowledged the hard work from the three fire departments involved.

“The collaboration and high work ethic of all on-scene personnel was commendable and highly appreciated,” he said.

Legendre said that the State Fire Marshal’s Office is further investigating the cause of the fire.
