According to firefighters, Mother nature played a part in hindering their ability to get a fire under control.

Neighbors in an Annaville neighborhood called 911 after seeing smoke coming from a roof’s home.

When firefighters arrived around 1 p.m. in the 10600 Block of Outpost Drive, flames were seen shooting from the roof.

Battalion Chief Tony Perez, with the Corpus Christi Fire Department, said the rain hindered the firefighters’ vision to get control of the fire.

It took crews around 40 minutes to put the fire out. Firefighters say no one was inside the home during the incident.

Three dogs were saved from the smoky home.
