An early morning fire appears to have left a Montrose District costume shop in ruins.
Houston firefighters arrived after 12 a.m. Friday to find flames engulfing the Vintage Oasis building on Westheimer Road near Ridgewood Street.
The building also contained an upstairs apartment unit.
Firefighters were able to put out the flames, but the building appears to be destroyed.
None of the residents were injured, but one of three cats who lived in the home was killed.
One firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion.
Arson investigators are trying to determine what caused the fire.
