HOUSTON -

Crews are investigating a two-alarm fire at a southeast Houston shopping center.

Houston firefighters say they arrived at the business on Beamer Road near Hughes Road on Sunday around 3 a.m.

Crews said they found heavy fire and smoke coming from a shop in the center.  

The fire then spread to nearby businesses. 

Firefighters said they had to go on defense before pulling a second alarm.  

According to crews, they had difficulty establishing a water supply because the fire hydrants were not close to the building.

No one was injured.
