A rash of fires has struck the Houston area lately, and one claimed the life of a deaf man.
As most families get ready for Thanksgiving, one household is coping with a house fire.
Friday afternoon, the Houston Fire Department reported a two-alarm fire at a high-rise building. The structure is located near the intersection of Kirby and the Southwest Freeway. Preliminary information indicated smoke in the lobby of the ninth floor, but the actual fire had not been identified, and no one has yet been evacuated. Arson may be involved.
