Furniture business destroyed by fire

SANTA FE (KRQE) – A fire overnight destroyed a Santa Fe furniture business and it was all the wood inside that helped fuel the flames.

The fire broke out at the Hands of America woodworking shop just before 10 p.m. Thursday. It took an hour and nearly 20 Santa Fe firefighters to put the fire out.

Officials say there’s still a large amount of debris that needs to be removed with heavy equipment.

The cause is still under investigation.

Rodeo Road between Sawmill Road and Old Pecos Trail had to be shut down for most of the day, but has since reopened.
