ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- One person is recovering from smoke inhalation following Monday morning house fire.


Firefighters arrived in Albuquerque's South Valley on Parajito near Coors to find a home fully engulfed in flames. Officials say the woman, who hasn't been identified, was alone at the time. Her home suffered extensive damage.

"They were able to locate a victim in the back bedroom, said Brian Rose, division chief for Bernalillo County Fire and Rescue. "The patient was pulseless and resuscitate efforts were made. They were able to resuscitate her and transport her to UNM Hospital where she's in critical condition."

The cause is under investigation.

Meanwhile, there is still no word on what sparked a fire at a home near Unser and Montano Sunday night.

The fire broke out just before 10 p.m. Fire crews say the home was fully engulfed by the time they got there, but no one was hurt.
