ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – Residents of a downtown Albuquerque neighborhood have said a fire is targeting their homes after a series of fires. In an alley near the Albuquerque Press Club, some of the fire damage is apparent on a gas meter and water line for a swamp cooler. It’s a few yards from where people slept.
“I heard people outside in the alley outside the bedroom window,” said David Hayden. A week ago, Hayden woke up early to a commotion outside his home near Gold Avenue and High Street in the downtown east side. “And it was the fire department that put out the fires,” Hayden said.
