CONDADO, EQUIPOS DE NMS LUCHAN CONTRA INCENDIO EN CASA MOVIL DE MESQUITE

            Firefighters from Doña Ana County’s South District, with assistance from the New Mexico State University Fire Department, responded to a burning mobile home in Mesquite Sunday night.

            The fire was first reported at 8:44 p.m. in the 400 block of N.M. Highway192. 

 According to Battalion Chief Kellen Tarkington, crews arrived to find the home approximately 25 percent involved in fire, with smoke and flames coming from the structure. Crews fought the fire from inside the home, which quickly contained the fire to the areas that were already affected. 

 Despite their efforts, the home appears to be a total loss. A total of 18 firefighters responded, 13 of which are volunteers with Doña Ana County.

             No injuries were reported, and the family who lived in the home is reportedly staying with family. 

 The cause of the fire is under investigation.
