HOUSTON The Houston Fire Department was able to contain a one-alarm house fire just off Highway 288 near Rosedale in southeast Houston Thursday evening.

As soon as HFD arrived at the scene, they went into a defensive mode and did not enter the home, HFD Cpt. Ruy Lozano said.

The fire lasted for about an hour before firefighters were able to extinguish it, Lozano said.

Officials said two people were in the house when the fire started, but they were able to escape without being injured.
