Authorities are investigating the cause of a house fire in northwest Harris County overnight. The flames sparked sometime around 10:30pm at a home on Bamwood near FM 1960. Firefighters say they had to truck in water to put on the fire because there is no water supply in the area. In all, around 35 firefighters from five different departments were needed to stop the flames.

No one was in the home at the time and no one was hurt. Investigators say the fire may have started in the garage.
