Firefighters are back at a home in Annaville that was severely damaged in a fire Sunday, after flames could be seen coming from the home again.

Fire crews were called back out to the 10600 block of Outpost Drive this morning and are currently battling hot spots inside the house. When crews arrived around 2:30 a.m., the house was, again, engulfed in flames.

Sunday, fire crews were called out to the house for flames coming 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 Sunday. It took crews about 40 minutes to put the fire out.

No one was injured in either fires. Three dogs were pulled from the home Sunday. Their condition is not known at this time.

Officials told the homeowner that the fire is likely electrical in nature. Investigators are working to determine the exact cause.
