Fire rages in downtown Newell

NEWELL- A massive fire burned down a good portion of the downtown area in Newell this morning.

Several fire departments and 16 neighboring agencies were called in around 6:45 a.m. to help. Firefighters on scene ran out of water, and that's when more personnel arrived.

The fire started in one building downtown and then spread to two more. A fourth building, the post office, got a lot of smoke damage.

Nobody was hurt in the fire. The fire is currently under investigation.
