HOUSTON – A heavy fire has left severe damage to a 100-year-old house in 2200 block of Fletcher Street.
Arriving HFD units say the single-story house was covered in smoke and flames when they arrived. It took nearly 15 minutes to get the bulk of the fire under control.
Four adults were inside the home at the time of the fire. Fortunately, they all made it out safely before HFD unit’s arrival.
Due to the extreme weather, HFD is working to determine if the fire was caused at least partially by heating units and a heavy power load on the electrical wiring.
