Fire damages engineering building on New Mexico State University campus

An early morning fire Monday damaged an engineering building on the campus of New Mexico State University.

A university employee told ABC-7 that the fire started in a computer server room and was contained to the third floor of the Engineering Complex III building.

Officials were unsure what started the 5:30 a.m. fire, but efforts to put it out resulted in extensive water damage to the second and third floors — which has made parts of the building unusable for now.

Classes in the building are temporarily canceled, and the university says students should check with their professors about alternative class arrangements.

No damage estimate was yet available, officials said.
