A fire in northwest Harris County swept through a home that had recently been converted into a business, according to the Northwest Fire Department

The fire started around 12:15 a.m. Saturday in a house on West Montgomery Road and Killough Drive, firefighters said.

According to firefighters, when they arrived at the house they had difficulty fighting the flames because of the locations of the fire hydrant, so they immediately called for backup.

There were no injuries as a result of the fire, but the home was a total loss, according to firefighters.

Firefighters said after they began questioning neighbors, they discovered a man may have started the fire.

Firefighters found the man not too far away and deputies took him into custody for questioning, according to officials.
