ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A fire this morning forced many people in an Albuquerque retirement community to leave their homes.

the fire broke out around 6 a.m. ina first-floor apartment kitchen of La Vida Llena Retirement Community near Montgomery and Juan Tabo. One person was taken to the hospital, and 13 residents were displaced.

The assisted living facility was once at the center of a coronavirus outbreak. But just last week, officials with the facility said all of their current 435 patients have tested negative for two consecutive tests.
