HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – Fire officials in northwest Harris County are investigating the cause of a house fire that left a family without a home on Sunday.
The fire started at about 12:45 p.m. at a home located in the Champions Centre Estates subdivision.
Fire crews said the flames started in or near the garage and quickly spread due to strong winds.
“The wind pushed the fire up into the attic of the structure, and once it got into the attic of the structure, we had a lot of difficulty getting to it,” said District Chief of the Champions Fire Department Douglas Poor.
No one was hurt as a result of the fire.
Neighbors have set up a GoFundMe account to help the family with expenses incurred as a result of the fire.
