HOUSTON, TX – An overnight fire destroyed a north Houston home. Crews got to the house on Noonday Ln. near Lillja Rd. around 2:30 a.m. Thursday only to find it engulfed in flames. Because the nearest hydrant was a block away, firefighters struggled to get enough water on the flames and the smoke was so think, it took more than an hour to get the fire under control.
The couple who lived there got out safely, but the home is a complete loss.
