According to the Houston Fire Department, the blaze was reported on Sunday afternoon at the Living Earth landscaping facility, the city-based ABC13 News reported.

In a tweet early Monday morning, the Department said that fire crews were “currently on scene at 5802 Crawford performing extinguishment efforts after receiving reports of a large pile mulch on fire”.

It added that there were no reports of any casualties or injuried.
