A big fire at a vacant building tied up traffic in northwest Houston as thick, black smoke drifted across the North Loop. The building, at Loop 610 and Rogers, caught fire late Wednesday afternoon. Smoke was sent over the lanes of traffic on 610, but no accidents were reported.

Firefighters pulled one man out of the building, but he ran away from the scene. It's believed he was homeless.
