The flames broke out around 2am at the Bay Area Construction Company off North Main at Riverside. Firefighters from the Highlands, Crosby, Sheldon, Channelview, Mont Belvieu and Huffman all responded. When they got there, they found a large mobile trailer engulfed in flames.

"We had adequate water supply," said Cpt. Daniel Grabill with the Highlands Fire Department. "We had two tankers from each of the departments to assist us."

Fire crews put out the blaze but the trailer was destroyed. No one was injured. It's unclear what started the fire. Harris county arson is investigating.
