HOUSTON – Firefighters are investigating a fire at an elderly woman’s home in northwest Houston overnight.
The fire was reported around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday on Emnora Lane at Ottawa Lane in Spring Branch West.
The Houston Fire Department said the first units on the scene found heavy flames coming from the back of the one-story home. They quickly got it under control, but the entire rear of the home was burned and part of the roof was damaged.
HFD said it appeared the fire started on the back patio, but it wasn’t clear what sparked the blaze.
The woman who owns the home was not there at time, and no injuries were reported.
