RIO RANCHO — A vacant country club in Rio Rancho has been gutted by a fire.
Authorities say they don’t suspect arson in the fire that broke out Friday night at the Chamisa Hills Country Club.
Rio Rancho Fire officials say the clubhouse’s roof collapsed, so they had to put the flames out from outside the building.
Deputy Chief Richard Doty told Albuquerque TV station KOB that his team and other agencies spent more than 15 hours getting the fire under control.
There are no reports of any injuries.
Rio Rancho Mayor Greg Hull says the country club was one of the original cornerstones that identified the community.
However, the club has been vacant for years.
