Overnight, a sizable fire broke out at the El Tiempo Cantina restaurant in Katy, with crews still on hand at the location this morning. Fortunately, no one was inside when the fire started, around 11:30 p.m., according to Click2Houston.

Initial reports were that the restaurant was destroyed in the fire. Flames and smoke were seen coming from the roof of the restaurant, in the 21800 block of Kingsland.

According to the Houston Chronicle, several fire departments responded to the two-alarm blaze.

No cause for the fire was given.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
