VIDEO: Houston Fire Department crews are working to control a three-alarm fire that continues to burn at a shopping center early Thursday. The fire was first reported around 1 a.m. at the Jensen Square complex, located on Jensen near Hurley. The shopping center has multiple shops and businesses. At this time, there are no reports of injuries. HFD said it appeared the fire started in a vacant portion of the shopping center, and part of the structure there collapsed. Gusty winds have been shifting, making it difficult to battle the flames. As of 5:30 a.m. flames and smoke were still visible. There's no word on what may have sparked the incident. KHOU11’s Anayeli Ruiz reported that the focus of firefighters was to keep the fire from going to nearby homes. Power was cut off some several in the area. "Mister McKinney's Historic Houston" tweeted that the adjacent Granada Theater appeared to be spared from the worst of the damage.
