An apartment under construction went up in flames early this morning during a two-alarm fire in west Houston.

The blaze started around 2am at a building on Ella Lee near Tanglewilde. Firefighters had to pull a second alarm and call in extra manpower because the flames were so intense.

When crews arrived, the roof of the building was on fire. They put out the flames before the fire could spread, and no one was hurt.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
