Harris County home damaged by fire

A family consisting of a mother, her daughter, and their pet dog were left homeless after their house was ravaged by fire in northwest Harris County on the night of Sunday, December 28.

According to reports, authorities were notified of a residential fire about 12:30 a.m. in the 15000 block of Ripplewind. Responding personnel from the Klein Fire Department noticed a huge fire in the rear portion of the roof. The family had been living in the house for over two decades; thankfully, no one was injured in the blaze. Fire Chief David Besselo stated that they quickly contained the fire and were able to mitigate the damage to the house. Authorities are investigating the cause of the residential fire.
