[ARCHIVED] Fires Damage Three Structures within 14-hour Period

Las Cruces Firefighters

Las Cruces firefighters extinguished three separate structure fires within about a 14-hour period between Wednesday, August 4 and Thursday, August 5.

All three fires were relatively minor and resulted in no injuries.

Shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 4, firefighters were dispatched to the 2500 block of Tuscan Hills Lane where a small fire damaged the back porch of a single-story residence. Firefighters had the small fire extinguished in minutes.

Just before 8 p.m. Wednesday, firefighters were called to a fire in an apartment kitchen at 912 E. Lohman Ave. Firefighters used a handline to extinguish the fire, which was contained to a small area of the kitchen.

Shortly after 7 a.m. Thursday, firefighters responded to a fire in a vacant building in the 2500 block of El Camino Real. Crews entered the building and extinguished the fire that was contained to one room.

 None of the fires appear to be related and the causes of all three continue to be investigated. Damage estimates are not available at this time.
