ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A porch fire was extinguished quickly by firefighters Wednesday at a home located at 3416 Calle del Monte Northeast.

The interior of the home was not damaged, and since the homeowners weren’t there, no injuries were reported.

Melissa Romero of AFD says hot smoke ashes in a trash can caused the blaze, adding AFD would like to remind residents to always extinguish ashes in a metal container at least 3 feet away from anything that can catch fire.
