ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An SUV suddenly caught fire a few blocks away from the APD protest at City Hall, in the intersection at Fourth Street and Lomas.

Smoke from the fire could be seen from different parts of the city.

No one was hurt but the car was destroyed.

It’s not clear if the fire is related to the demonstration at City Hall or just a coincidence.
