HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Crews have extinguished a fire at an auto parts facility that left a firefighter injured in southwest Houston on Thursday.
The Houston Fire Department tweeted at about 11:14 a.m. that it responded to 2910 Holmes Road after reports of a building on fire.
HFD said the call upgraded to a 2-alarm fire.
SkyEye flew over the burning Green Auto Parts warehouse, where crews could be seen battling what was left of the fire.
In an update, HFD said the fire was put out, and no civilians were hurt, although a firefighter suffered a back injury and was taken to a nearby ER.
