Circuit breaker cause of SE Houston house fire
HOUSTON The fire broke out around 9:30pm. A Houston Fire Department official says a quick attack helped control flames at the one-story wood frame house on Winfree at Telephone. The people inside managed to escape before anyone got hurt. Investigators say a shorted-out circuit breaker caught fire and the flames spread to the back of the house and into the attic. They say the house will probably have to be knocked down.
