HOUSTON (AP) - Assistant Fire Chief Omero Longoria says three people were taken to a hospital after fire destroyed a historic downtown Houston restaurant.
Firefighters got the call of a fire at Brennan's restaurant in downtown Houston just after midnight, but were still on the scene more than four hours later, Longoria said Saturday.
"It was a pretty massive fire," Longoria said.
Two men and a little girl were outside the restaurant when firefighters got there. Longoria said the two men were workers at the restaurant and the girl was the daughter of 1 of the men.
The father and daughter were transported to a hospital in critical condition with burns to 70% of their body. The other man was also taken to the hospital, he said.
