TUCUMCARI, N.M. (AP) - Authorities are investigating a fire that destroyed the Tucumcari Probation and Parole Office.

The fire was reported about 3:45 a.m. Monday and there's no immediate word on the possible cause of the blaze.

Adjacent offices suffered smoke damage.

The New Mexico Corrections Department has occupied the building for about 20 years.

The department now is in the process of moving to the District Courthouse by the end of this month.

In preparation for the move, all the files were taken out of the office last Friday and taken to the Clovis Office.
