The wind made it tough to fight a fire at a four-story building in southwest Houston.
Houston firefighters said the blaze started at a clothing store inside a building on Fountain View Drive near Richmond Avenue about 4 a.m. Tuesday.
The wind threatened to spread the fire, but after about half an hour, crews were able to put it out.
No one was inside the building at the time.
No injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
