Three cars went up in flames in southwest Houston overnight and now firefighters say they might have been intentionally set. That's because no one was trying to start the vehicles when the fire started. Around 3:30am, the owner of the cars woke up when they heard noises outside their apartment on Gustine near South Gessner.

"I heard the cars like exploding and I just looked through a window and I saw the fire, so I called my parents because those were our cars," said Darlenes Infante, whose parents own the cars.

The owner says it's sad because her parents had a lot of important papers inside the cars.
