The Houston Fire Department responded to a one-alarm fire on the grounds of the Quba Islamic Institute early Friday.
It was reported at 5:39 a.m. not far from Ellington Airport. FM 1959 was blocked in both directions just east of the Gulf Freeway.
Air 11 was overhead as firefighters worked to knock out the fire at one of the institute’s buildings. Heavy smoke poured from the facility, and flames shot from the roof.
