Investigators say a fire at warehouse in east Houston was intentionally set.The abandoned warehouse on Harrisburg near Estelle went up in smoke Saturday night. Several old parade floats were damaged in the blaze.

A neighbor says the warehouse has been abandoned since it was sold four years ago, and the property often attracts vandals.

Precinct 6 constable Victor Trevino says abandoned buildings have become a bigger problem in his area since the recession began.
