VIDEO: Multiple firefighter units and HAZMAT crews responded to a four-alarm fire at a warehouse on Saturday afternoon along SH-249 and the Beltway near Tomball. It started at about 5:30 p.m. in the 62000 block of Tomball Parkway (SH-249) and lasted throughout the night. Investigators are still unclear of the cause. Fortunately, no injuries were reported. The Harris County Fire Marshal's Office confirmed the building had been vacant for two years. It's currently owned by IQ Products Company, which supplies household, automotive and personal care products. The fire happened on the storage side of the building where they keep the finished products. Drivers passing the scene shared video with KHOU 11, showing heavy flames and large plumes of black smoke engulfing the building. “And then you could start hearing aerosol cans popping off. Bam. Bam. Bam. We were safe at the distance we were at and then after a while, police came.'
