ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Albuquerque firefighters battled an apartment fire Tuesday morning that left one man injured.
It happened at the Broadstone Apartments on Sequoia in northwest Albuquerque.
AFD says when firefighters arrived they reported thick black smoke coming out of a first-floor apartment.
When they got inside, they were able to get the fire out in a few minutes, but say a man in his 30's who was inside, suffered smoke inhalation.
He was taken to the hospital and his condition is stable.
Firefighters say the fire started in the bedroom but they are investigating exactly what caused it, but they say it does not appear to be suspicious.
