ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A second fire in two months has struck an Albuquerque Route 66 motel and apartment complex made famous in the 2007 movie “No Country for Old Men.”

KOAT-TV in Albuquerque reports (https://goo.gl/CDDLR4 ) firefighters were called Sunday to the blaze in a unit at the Desert Sands Motel. Investigators believe the fire may have been started by a homeless person who managed to get into the boarded up property for shelter.

A May 24th fire destroyed most of the complex’s 63 units and forced residents out of their homes. A 37-year-old woman faces an arson charge in connection with that massive blaze.

No arrests were reported from the latest fire.

The hotel was the scene of a final shootout in the movie “No Country for Old Men” starring Oscar-winner Javier Bardem.
