Several people were evacuated from their homes overnight during an apartment fire in Southeast Albuquerque.

It happened on Pennsylvania near Zuni just before 3 a.m. Thursday.

Investigators say flames and smoke were coming from an abandoned five-unit apartment complex.

The fire was quickly extinguished, but not before 11 people living nearby were evacuated.

They have since been let back in.
