SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) -Firefighters continued to work throughout Tuesday morning checking for hotspots after a two-alarm fire sent flames shooting nearly 30 feet in the air, destroying an abandoned building that was once the set of a popular T.V. show.

The flames and smoke tore through the building that was once used as the set for the show, “Manhattan.”

The building sits near the Santa Fe University Art and Design school.

When firefighters arrived around eight last night, the flames had completely taken it over.

Nearly 40 firefighters were called to the scene to help, and within hours crews were able to get the fire under control.

KRQE News 13 was told parts of the abandoned building did collapse. As far as damage, it appears to just be contained to the one area.

An arson investigation team will be on hand later Tuesday morning to do a routine check for the cause.

“Manhattan” was canceled last year after airing for two seasons.
