Fire knocks out power, gas to homes

July 25, 2008 6:08:17 AM PDT
CenterPoint crews are working to restore gas and electricity to about 100 homes in the Tangier neighborhood.A house fire on Tangier at Windfern is to blame for the outage. Flames from the home spread to a large tree, causing it to topple over.

The tree brought down power lines with it, and also broke a gas pipe deep underground, catching it on fire as well. No word yet on how long it will take to restore all the services.
