A few cars at a repair shop in northwest Houston are in need of even more repairs.

That's because they were damanged in an early morning fire at the Car Bach Automotive Shop on Hempstead.

The damage could have been much worse if not for a sharp-eyed Houston police officer. He was driving by when he noticed the flames leaping from the cars. He called for help and firefighters were able to contain the fire to two cars.

It's not clear if the fire was accidental or arson.
