A fire ravaged an abandoned house on Maloney Avenue and 4th Street, between Ted’s Pawn and the shuttered Plese Grocery Market Jan. 1

The call came into Metro Dispatch at about 5:45 pm. One man was rescued from the building and treated for smoke inhalation. The fire was readily contained, and no other injuries were reported. Gallup Police Department Capt. Marinda Spencer said the man could face charges as he wasn’t granted permission to enter the home.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
