HOUSTON (KTRK/CNN) - Firefighters are trying to put out a blaze in a flooded building in Houston.

They found the flames shooting through the roof when they arrived Saturday morning. Smoke from the fire could be seen for miles.

The building is a multi-family complex that appears to be a total loss.

Firefighters had to wade through knee-deep water to get to the building.

There is no word on injuries on how the fire was started.
