The state Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the cause of a fire that consumed and destroyed a house in the community of La Puebla on Saturday afternoon, a Santa Fe County spokeswoman said Monday.

The 3,000-square-foot home on Rio Vista Run was "a total loss," Santa Fe County spokeswoman Carmelina Hart said Monday.

Two people in the house were not hurt but were evaluated by emergency medical personnel on the scene, she said.
