CHANNELVIEW, Texas A home in Channelview caught fire overnight Wednesday, destroying the property while its owners were away on vacation, firefighters said.

The fire was reported around midnight on S. Brentwood Street at Grand Street, just north of the East Freeway.

Firefighters found heavy flames shooting from a one-story home. They had trouble getting access to the property due to an iron fence and burglar bars, the fire department said.

No injuries were reported, but home was completely destroyed.

Officials said the homeowners were away on vacation at the time.

The Harris County Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the blaze.
