A newspaper building started on fire Saturday afternoon in Eddy County.

Crews responded to the call around 1 p.m. Saturday for a fire at the New Rockford Transcript.

The New Rockford Transcript is completely destroyed.

Crews were able to save a connecting building that has an MDU office and storage unit.

The cause is undetermined until a fire marshal can come Monday.

Crews were working in upwards of 98 degrees. At least one of them was treated for heat exhaustion.

As of 7:30 p.m. crew members were still on scene dealing with hot spots.
