2-alarm fire injures Cy-Fair firefighter, destroys home

HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS - A two-alarm fire destroyed a home and business in northwest Harris County late Wednesday, injuring one firefighter.

The Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department responded to N. Eldridge at Emmett around 8 p.m. and found big flames coming from a home that was also being used as a furniture business.

The family inside was already out, so firefighters focused on trying to get the fire under control.

One firefighter suffered a minor injury and was taken to the hospital to get checked out.

Winds and dry conditions spread the fire from the home to storage buildings on the same property. All were destroyed, firefighters said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
