HOUSTON (KTRK) --Firefighters pulled two birds from a burning home in west Houston.
This happened a little before 10pm Saturday at a home on Briarstem Drive near Piping Rock Lane.
Flames were shooting through the roof when firefighters pulled up.
The family had escaped, but had to leave a parrot and another bird inside.
Firefighters pulled the birds out just in time.
The home, though, was badly damaged. Arson investigators are working to identify what started the fire.
