House collapses in Southeast Houston

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Around 10:50am, the Houston Fire Department responded to multiple calls about a house collapsing near Paris and Idaho Street in the Southeast Houston area.

The small house had been heavily damaged by fire, but HFD Captain Ruy Lozano says there were no injuries reported.

After shooting water onto the home, firefighters on the scene used poles to knock down what was left of the house. The firefighters then tied ropes to the house and to one of the fire trucks, which pulled chunks of the house down.
