HOUSTON - Two Houston firefighters have died fighting a house fire early this morning.
Officials say the department responded to a house fire shortly after midnight this morning.
Neighbors say firefighters didn't enter the house until the blaze looked like it was calming down, but suddenly flames shot through the roof and sideways through the house.
Firefighters left the house, and two were missing during roll call.
The bodies of the two who were missing were recovered shortly after.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
