Firefighters put out a blaze at a ship docked in the Houston Ship Channel overnight. Flames were spotted around 1am on a huge cargo ship. Crews say smoke was coming from the front end of the boat. No one was on board at the time, but crews had been there earlier welding inside the ship and it's believed that caused the fire.

The fire did seriously damage the ship.
