LOS LUNAS, N.M. -- Valencia County Fire Department crews are fighting a fire that broke out at Sunset Foods Inc. on Sunday afternoon.
Crews have the fire under control and are still fighting a few flair ups.
The production facility suffered substantial damage, Sunset Foods said on its Facebook page.
Sunset Foods makes and sells New Mexico beef jerky and chile snacks.
"We are devastated at this time. This has been a family business for over 30 years. Thank God for the Valencia County firefighters for their quick response," said Jordan Lapira, sales and marketing director for Sunset Foods.
No one was inside at the time of the fire.
