some info from abc13.com-
Firefighters are on the scene of a three-alarm warehouse fire in east Houston.

The fire broke out just before 6am on Old Clinton Road at Shotwell- just behind McReynolds Middle School. There are reports that a palate outside the warehouse caught fire and flames quickly spread into the structure.

The warehouse is apparently in an industrial warehouse area and not causing any problems for any residents. There were reports that a couple of the walls have collapsed. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. And there are no reports of any injuries.


We hope to have more info on the cause of this fire and to find out what exactly is burning, so we can have a better idea about how it might affect Denver Harbor & 5th Ward residents.


  1. Boil your water before use. Per DH resident, fire dept stated that the water will be left toxic.

  2. Thanks for the info. I am reading Channel 13 and seeing that the air quality is not great right now either.
    I haven't been home to see and smell myself- but i will be adding on to this story tonight.
