The National Insititute of Flamenco is planning to rebuild after a December fire destroyed their building.

This week the area was cleared of the rubble and is now a big parking lot.

Coordinators with the institute say they are working on a big come back. 

Marisa Magallanez with the Flamenco Institute said they may return to the downtown area at some point and will meet with the owner of the lot to discuss possibilities.

For now, the institute is operating out of UNM, a situation Magallanez said she hopes is temporary.

The institute is trying to build the anticipation a bit.

They'll announce a master plan in June at the International Flamenco Festival.

Investigators still don't know what caused the fire in December.
