It took four fire departments to get a warehouse fire in east Harris County under control early Saturday. The fire broke out at a warehouse in the 1700 block of E. Barbours Cut Blvd. in Morgan's Point around midnight Friday.

Firefighters said a warehouse full of cotton and giant rolls of paper caught fire.

Around 100 firefighters from La Porte, Baytown, Pasadena and Seabrook used fire boats and trucks to get the flames under control.

The blaze was eventually knocked out, but firefighters stayed on scene Saturday morning to make sure there weren't any flare-ups.

There were no reports of injuries, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
