The fire started last night on Windy Trails near Windveil. The homeowner says he was burning debris outside when the fire spread to his garage. The garage was destroyed and two vehicles inside were burned. The flames also damaged part of the home.

"There was a unit next door that we did a primary search on. There is some smoke damage," said Robert Rasa with the Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department. "Most of the damage is contained to the one residence."

The homeowner was not hurt. Investigators have not determined an exact cause.
