ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A single Albuquerque mother and her two young kids were displaced recently after a fire at their home.

One of the firefighters who responded, Christopher Ortiz, nominated the family for the Albuquerque Fire Department’s Random Acts of Kindness campaign.

When the woman found a new apartment, she needed furniture. So, firefighters from Ladder & Engine #5 stepped in and delivered a washing machine, a dresser and beds. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
