An abandoned building recently caught fire. The Gallup Fire Department is still looking into what caused it.

GFD responded to a report of a structure fire at 3191 Industry Dr. on March 13 around 7:45 pm. When they arrived, fire crews found a large single story vacant warehouse building that had heavy smoke and flames coming out of it.

Fire  Crews made an exterior attack to extinguish the main body of the fire and spent most of  the night extinguishing small concealed fires and hotspots. The vacant building  sustained heavy fire damage, which caused the roof to collapse.

A general alarm  was dispatched for off-duty members to report to the location. A  total of 23 firefighters responded, no injuries were reported.

Damage estimates are still unknown at this time. The cause of the fire and its origin is under investigation.
