HOUSTON –- A former church building was destroyed in an early-morning fire south of downtown Houston. The Houston Fire Department was called to Dixie Drive at Allegheny Street around 5:40 a.m.

Firefighters found heavy flames shooting from a building behind a strip center. The abandoned two-story structure, which at first appeared to be a home, was quickly consumed by the flames. It took firefighters more than an hour to get it under control.
