HOUSTON - Firefighters faced obstacles while battling a house fire in northeast Houston on Saturday.

The incident was reported in the area of Mesa Drive and East Mount Houston Road. 

A lack of fire hydrants in the area caused officials to call in all of their tankers for aid.

First responders said a resident was home when the fire broke out, but was able to get out safely.
