Firefighters working to put out fire at storage facility in Pasadena

PASADENA, Texas – Firefighters worked for nearly two hours to put out a fire at a storage facility in Pasadena.

Officials said they were called to a fire at a 24-unit storage facility around 6:15 a.m. Thursday morning in the 2600 block of Allen Genoa Road.

According to the Pasadena Fire Marshal, 12 of the 24 units at the storage facility were badly damaged in the fire. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Andrew Baker told KPRC 2 that he was on his way home from work he saw smoke and called 911.

“When I first came up the flames weren’t that high, it was about two or three units on fire but then it started to spread,” said Baker.

Maria Camberos lives in a residence on the property with her four children. She said that she woke up to loud banging at her front door and someone alerted her about the fire.

“I told my kids to hurry, we have to get out quick, the fire is coming quick,” she said.

No one was injured in the fire, according to firefighters at the scene.
