A family of five has lost everything in a house fire in in east Houston Wednesday morning. Members of the Brown family stood on Market Street watching as their collected memories went up in smoke. All five people had been inside the house in bed when one of the residents smelled smoke. The dwelling became engulfed in flames so quickly, that the residents felt fortunate to have gotten out. Currently, investigators have not determined a cause for the fire. A nearby barbershop located next door also suffered damage in the blaze. A fire in the home is devastating. Fires, by their very nature, often cause serious personal injuries such as burns or even are a cause of death.
