Tenant smoking while on oxygen causes apartment complex fire

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Residents at a northeast Albuquerque apartment complex got a firsthand look at why cigarettes and oxygen don’t mix.

A fire started at the apartments near San Mateo and Candelaria Saturday morning.

The Albuquerque Fire Department says it started because a tenant was smoking while on oxygen.

No one was hurt, but AFD says as many as five people are likely displaced.
