House fire takes out several power lines

HOUSTON

The fire started at a home on Leaftex near Plumtex just before 2am.

When crews arrived, the one-story home was fully engulfed in flames. The intensity of the blaze forced firefighters to fight it from the outside.

Officials say no one was home at the time.

CenterPoint was called to the scene to handle power lines that were downed during the fire.

Arson investigators are looking into what started the blaze.
