Early this morning, on November 1, 2023, at around 4:00 AM, Albuquerque Fire Rescue (AFR) was alerted to a potential structure fire at the Green Tree Inn and Suites, situated at 2120 Menaul Blvd NE. The firefighters from Battalion 1 were quick to respond, and when they arrived on the scene, they observed a fire in progress on the second floor of a two-story multifamily residential building.
Based on videos posted to both AFR's Facebook and Instagram, the fire had the ability to spread rapidly, and flames were seen billowing out of the apartment that was ablaze. However, thanks to AFR's rapid and efficient actions, the fire was brought under control within just 15 minutes of their arrival.
According to AFR, most of the damage was contained within the apartment where the fire started, with some adjacent apartments experiencing smoke damage. AFR's Fire Investigators are currently at the scene, diligently working to determine the cause of the fire.
Fortunately, there were no injuries to the firefighters who fought the fire, and only one injury was reported, which was promptly treated by the rescue team on-site.
