140 firefighters battle tire blaze at west Houston business
HOUSTON – More than 140 firefighters spent Monday battling a large tire fire at a west Houston business.
The fire was reported just before 3 a.m. at a large pawn shop on Fondren Road near the Westpark Tollway.
Firefighters said the bulk of the fire happened at a tire and automotive shop next to the pawn shop, and the fire was kept inside the building.
Extinguishing the blaze will be a slow process because of the nature of what is burning, firefighters said.
No injuries were reported.
The cause is under investigation.
