The South Houston Fire Department battled a blaze this week.

The fire was so big, reinforcements were called from the Houston Fire Department.

Sometime around 11:25 p.m. on Wednesday night, a fire started in a commercial warehouse located in the 100 block of Avenue D, which is between Spencer Highway and Highway 3 in south Houston.

The two-story warehouse was once home to an orange juice factory.

Crews arrived to fight the fire, but water pressure was low, and extinguishing the flames became more difficult.


The fire eventually spread to a neighboring car dealership, damaging several vehicles.

A small transformer explosion near the blaze added to the spectacle.

It also knocked out power for those living near the fire.┬áCenterPoint Energy reported that 377 of their customers were without power, but services were expected to be restored on “Thursday before noon.”
