A 50-year-old building is destroyed after a fire broke out Thursday morning at the Nugget Lounge in Hearne at the 1300 block of Old Franklin Highway.

Firefighters were called out just after 6:00 a.m. after the air conditioning unit was reported to be on fire. News 3 had a crew on scene not too long after it broke out and say it was fully engulfed upon arrival.

It took roughly two-and-a-half hours for crews from Blackjack, Calvert, Hearne and Franklin to extinguish the flames. No one was injured, but the building is a total loss.
