Select empty space and change color in vector

I have a vector which has some empty regions. I am not sure how to fill some specific empty regions since I can’t make a selection, and also the ‘image trace’ is disabled.
In this example, I want to make the pole red.

I am a newbie in AI.

The .ai file can be found here:

You can select your path and Right click → Release Compound Path (Alt+Shift+Ctrl+8).

This will break away the cutout back to it’s own shape which can then be filled.
