An early morning house fire on Houston's south side is being called suspicious. Firefighters were called out to a home on McKinley at Vera Lou around 4am Friday morning. At that time, flames were shooting through the roof. Crews made a fast attack, but a lot of damage was done.

Several people were inside the house when the fire started, but everyone got out safely.

Arson detectives are investigating.
