Las Cruces firefighters extinguished a fire that damaged a home near Dona Ana Road early Thursday morning.
Shortly before 4 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 9, firefighters were called to the report of a fire near the intersection of Dona Ana Road and Karen Avenue. The fire was discovered in a vacant home at 395 Karen Ave.
Though the home was vacant when firefighters arrived, fire investigators found evidence that suggests it was recently occupied.
Firefighters attacked the fire and had it under control within an hour of dispatch.
The home was badly damaged, but no injuries were reported. El Paso Electric was called to the scene as the fire impinged on the lines feeding the exterior panels.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
