HOUSTON — A downed tree and power lines made it somewhat difficult to battle flames that erupted at a vacant home early Wednesday, according to Houston firefighters.

HFD responded to find a home fully involved on Theron near Fulton around midnight.

The intense flames prevented firefighters from entering the home, so they went on the defensive and fought it from the outside, eventually bringing it under control.

Arson is investigating the cause of the fire.
