HOUSTON, TX - A rude awakening for some Houston residents after a fire broke out at their apartment complex near the Texas Medical Center early Monday morning.

Fire crews found a car engulfed in flames in the underground parking garage of the Serento Condos off Dorrington St. and Montclair Dr. The fire prompted crews to evacuate the building while they checked for any other fires. None were found and the car fire was put out quickly.

Investigators say it looks like someone broke into the car and possibly set it on fire.
