Huge fire burns down residential construction building in Montrose area

Reports have come in that a 5-alarm fire is burning at a residential building under construction in the Montrose area. Houston firefighters responded to the blaze at around 12:30 p.m. Several fire units and emergency crews are on the scene, including nearly 200 firefighters. HFD called for a 5th alarm shortly before 1:30 p.m. People can see flames and smoke can be seen from miles away. Winds have been pretty heavy in Houston. We suspect that Houston is feeling 20-25 mph wind gusts. These winds are most likely helping to fuel the fire. As you can imagine, these windy conditions can make firefighting more difficult. Fire too creates its own wind currents. The thick black smoke could be seen from several miles away as the flames burned out of control.
