Downtown El Paso Building Heavily Damaged In Fire

A fire left a downtown El Paso building heavily damaged early Saturday morning.

ABC-7 spoke with El Paso Fire Department spokesman John Concha as firefighters were cleaning up the scene. Concha said the fire department received a report of a fire at 316 South Stanton St. in downtown El Paso at approximately 6:15 a.m. Saturday morning.

Concha said that 50 firefighters responded to the blaze. Even though the building was engulfed in flames, the fire only took 20 minutes to bring under control.

EPFD reported there were no injuries to firefighters and no one was in the building at the time of the fire.

The business that received the most damage is a clothing store called Rasputin, while two adjacent buildings were reported by EPFD to have sustained exposure damage both from fire and water.

Damage is preliminarily estimated at $125,000.
