Firefighters battled two blazes in the Houston area early this morning, according to televised reports from KTRK (Channel 13) and KHOU (Channel 11).
The first fire broke out at a paint booth at the Goodman Air Conditioning plant at 6800 Overmeyer in northwest Houston. HazMat crews were called to the plant as a precaution.
There was no serious threat to the facility and employees were allowed to return to work.
Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the blaze.
A second blaze engulfed a warehouse at the 9000 block of Boone at Alief on the city’s southwest side. Firefighters reported to the scene around 4:30 a.m., and witnesses told authorities that they heard several explosions from the area.
The inferno was extinguished, and authorities are still investigating what caused the fire and what was housed in the building. No injures were reported and the building was a total lost.
The other TV stations must feel so left out!
Strangely, the story of the two fires written from TV news reports has now been replaced with the Chronicle‘s own story about only one fire.
