September 23, 2009 6:41:40 AM PDT
Houston firefighters were busy this morning fighting a massive fire at a restaurant in southeast Houston.The flames broke out about 4am at Taqueria El Sol de Jalisco on Telephone near Hasbrook.

Firefighters have put out the fire. They are now working on putting out hot spots. HFD got the call shortly after 4am but firefighters had been out there just yesterday around 5pm for a kitchen grease fire. Fire crews say yesterday's fire wasn't substantial enough to shut off electricity to the building. The restaurant was not open when the second fire began.

The fire seemed to start in about the same location that yesterday's fire started. Fire HFD Chief Tommy Dowdy says they aren't sure what caused the fire. They are waiting for arson investigators to arrive on the scene to help determine the cause.

No one was injured in the fire.
