Aftermath of house fire that claimed the life of a teen


Albuquerque -


On July 7th, 2022, the Albuquerque Police Department was trying to apprehend Quiant Kelley on a federal felony warrant. Police say Kelley and a teenage boy were about to be detained when they ran into a home at 8109 San Joaquin Ave SE. APD initiated a SWAT call for barricaded subjects.


ABQ RAW did a public records request for the Albuquerque Fire Rescue computer aided dispatch logs. What we learned is that at 2:41AM, the Albuquerque Police Department requested Albuquerque Fire and Rescue to standby for something possibly burning on the roof of the target home.


At 3:12AM, Albuquerque Fire and Rescue began to attack the fire in a defensive fire fighting position. The call logs noted heavy smoke and flames. At 3:23AM, the scene is then deemed secure and firefighters were finally able to enter the residence. At 3:37AM, the fire was under control and fire fighters began to do additional clearing of the structure.

The CAD logs report finding a deceased dog inside the home. Due to redactions citing HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) it is unclear when they found Brett Rosenau, he is the 15-year-old who died during the SWAT and fire situation at the house. Preliminary results of Brett Rosenau's autopsy identify his cause of death as smoke inhalation.

At 4:00AM the fire was completely under control. The AFR Fire Investigations Division is currently still investigating the cause of the fire. A separate investigation is underway with the multi-agency task force to see if APD's SWAT team acted properly during the incident.
