House fire investigated

Freedom New Mexico

Firefighters extinguished flames in an unoccupied house in the 1600 block of South Globe Street about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday.

One room and the ceiling of another room were damaged, said fire investigator Mike Inge.

Inge said the cause was unknown, but nothing appeared suspicious. The electricity wasn’t hooked up, and the house had been unoccupied since another part of it caught fire in February, he said.

The cause is under investigation.
