We are approaching the one year anniversary of the Downtown Apartment Fire at the historic Huning Castle Apartments
which took place August 3rd, 2009.
I don't know of any 'good' that has come of this fire other than this year's story line from Br Ba
(AMC TV's Breaking Bad
) which utilized actual scenes shot from the KOBtv NEWS helicopter of the fire to portray an Albuquerque airplane crash. Marla Tellez announces the crash, while the camera opens and pans over the smoldering wreckage of the Apartment Fire. And, no one was hurt that memorable night last summer.
Within the last two weeks, the apartments have been totally razed...In case youi have not driven by lately, here are some pictures of how the Castle is looking now...
