Another suspicious fire in the Heights area is under investigation. The latest fire broke out around 10:30pm Saturday at a home on Kiam near Cohn. Firefighters say they found flames coming from all sides of the house when they arrived. They quickly put it out, but the whole inside of the home was destroyed. They believe it might be intentionally set because it was empty and didn't have electricity or gas.

"Any vacant buildings that we have out in this area seem like, especially with no power to it, are suspicious," said Houston Fire Department District Chief Ronald Kelly.

No one was hurt in the fire. Nearly two dozen fires have been set in the Heights since August. Since then, only one man, David Joseph Prince was arrested and charged with setting one of the fires.
