ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - An Albuquerque woman nearly lost her apartment after it caught on fire Saturday.
The fire started just after 2:30 p.m. at a small apartment on Montclaire NE near Phoenix.
Firefighters quickly responded and put out the fire containing it to one room. The woman who lived there already had gotten help from a neighbor.
"I woke up to my neighbor banging on my door shouting, 'There's a fire,'" Patrick Orourke said. "I came out; she was already outside.
"The hose was on so I went into her apartment and started spraying everything I could. I couldn't breathe so I laid down in the doorway and started spraying what I could reach and yelled everyone to call the fire department."
The woman was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene and will be OK.
Firefighters are still investigating the cause of the fire.
