HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A three-alarm fire burned at the Memorial Hermann professional building located in Southeast Houston Sunday afternoon.

Reports indicate that the Houston Fire Department was able to contain the blaze despite the fire being three-alarm.

According to hospital officials, something had been burning in a mechanical room on the second floor, which generated little to no flames.

The burning coupled with heavy smoke, filled out the area and as a result, three alarms were pulled in response.
Several HFD vehicles responded to the blaze inside the professional building, located in the 11900 block of Astoria Boulevard.

Additional reports indicate that smoke could be seen from the first floor window as firefighters used axes to break out windows. The first two alarms were pulled just after 4:30 p.m. on Sunday with the third alarm pulled just after 5 p.m.

Hospital staff and patients are not allowed in the mechanical room; there were no injuries reported.
