BERNALILLO COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) — Bernalillo County Fire Rescue (BCFR) said a fire started outside of a plastic facility, identified as Atkore United Poly Systems, in the 5300 block of Hawking Drive around 2:38 p.m Sunday. The building was evacuated and there are no injuries reported.

According to officials, a vehicle fire near the building became out of control. According to BCFD, crews got the fire under control after 7:30 p.m. Officials say crews were expected to work overnight.

Multiple departments were on scene and even though it was a windy day, fire officials mentioned the high winds pushed the fire away from nearby buildings.

AFR said the fire involves “structures, product, and vehicles” and warned the public to stay away from Bobby Foster Road and University Blvd SE.

The city’s Environmental Health Dept. advised staying inside with windows and doors closed for respiratory health.

At 5 p.m., a health alert was issued for the Albuquerque and Bernalillo County residents due to “smoke [that] contains hazardous air pollutants.” It expires at 10 a.m. on Monday.

In the alert, officials said: “This smoke is unhealthy for everyone, and people should limit outdoor activity tonight in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County.”
