HOUSTON (FOX26) - It was shortly after midnight when the flames started at an apartment complex in northwest Harris County.
As firefighters arrived, they had trouble tapping into a fire hydrant on the property, and had to go to one off site. By the time they finally got a water source flowing, the flames had spread significantly
This is an old building, so there are no fire walls and there's a shared attic space, which made it much easier for the flames to spread.
Fortunately, nobody was injured. We're told a couple of residents lost their cats in the fire. At this point, investigators are not sure what caused the flames.
