The Tucumcari Police Department is investigating a Friday night fire which destroyed one vacant home and damaged two others.

“The cause of the fire has still not been determined,” said Tucumcari Fire Chief Mike Cherry.

Cherry said the fires seemed suspicious, as one home was destroyed on the 500 block of East Center Street. He said the house to the west of the residence had radiant fire damage.

“The residence to the east appears to have had a fire set in the living room,” Cherry said.
