2-Alarm Fire Breaks Out At Gun Range

POSTED: 8:04 am CDT April 19, 2007

HUMBLE, Texas -- Firefighters had more than just flames to deal with while battling a two-alarm fire in Humble on Wednesday, KPRC Local 2 reported.

Three fire departments battled the blaze at the Sportsman's Outlet on F.M. 1960 near Ramblewood Drive at about 7:30 p.m.

The fire spread into an ammunition building, sending bullets through the walls and into the parking lot.

"In a building like that, you obviously have a lot of ammunition," Humble Fire Department Assistant Chief Mike Lagoudes said. "You got gunpowder -- you got all kinds of thing that will very rapidly start a fire and support combustion."

Several vehicles in the parking lot were hit.

A police academy class was inside the range when the fire started. Everyone escaped without injury.

It took firefighters from Humble, Atascocita and Houston about an hour and a half to put the fire out.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
