A southeast Houston strip shopping center caught fire Thursday.
Firefighters were sent to the 16500 block of El Camino Real shortly before 5 a.m. Smoke was billowing from the roof of a building.
Firefighters punched a hole in the roof to get to the fire and put it out.
Officials said the blaze may have been intentionally set to cover up a break-in. No injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire is not yet known.
