A mulch fire broke out overnight at a landscaping company in northwest Harris County. The fire sparked around 9pm Saturday at Landscape Depot on F.M. 1960 near Gilder.

Cy-Fair volunteer firefighters quickly got the blaze contained, but it sent huge plumes of smoke into the air.

Investigators say the fire was sparked by natural combustion.

Mulch fires take some time to be fully extinguished. Crews planned to stay at the scene to watch for flare-ups.
