HUGO, OK-- A fire at an abandoned Hugo factory over the weekend is being investigated as suspicious.

It happened just before 4 A.M. Saturday on the corner of North H and McAlester Street in Hugo.

Fire Chief Ron Cloud says the abandoned factory was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived. It took them about two hours to put out the fire.

The building used to be a rat poison factory, but has since shut down.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. The building is a total loss.
