It appears someone tried to set a house on fire in northwest Houston early this morning.

Around 3:15am, flames started on the outside of an empty home on Chas Lane near Knox

Firefighters got on scene to discover flames shooting through the roof. They got the fire extinguished and then immediately called arson investigators.

It's clear the fire started on an outside wall and they have now taken samples to check for possible accelerants.
