A tortilla factory in northeast Houston went up in flames with more than two dozen people inside.

The fire started just before 11 last night inside the La Ranchera Tortilla Factory on Berry Road. At least 30 to 35 people were inside the factory when it started to burn, but everyone made it out safely.

The fire started in the attic, spreading and tearing into the ceiling before crews got the flames under control.

No word yet on what sparked the flames.
