NEW: Crews Battle Blaze At Sussex DNR Office

Less than a week after a devastating flood struck Sussex, the town being dealt another blow with a fire at the Department of Natural Resources office.

Sussex Fire Chief Harold Lowe tells CHSJ News smoke was seen coming from the building after staff had left the office and when crews arrived the roof was fully engulfed in flames and starting to collapse. While the structure itself is still standing, the roof is gone and the D-N-R office has sustained some water damage.

One firefighter was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure with possible heat exhaustion. 

The fire marshal will be coming to investigate what caused the blaze.
