The City of Conroe Fire Department was notified of a structure fire in the 600 block of E
Davis St., near N 6th St. at approximately 8:28 am on December 12, 2016.
Conroe Firefighters arrived at approximately 8:32 am and found heavy smoke coming from a single
story commercial building. Initial attempts were made to gain access to the interior of the building but
the decision was ultimately made to fight the fire from the building’s exterior due to rapidly deteriorating
conditions. A second alarm was requested, bringing resources from the North Montgomery County
and Caney Creek Fire Departments. The fire was declared under control at approximately 9:15 am.
All occupants of the building were accounted for early in the incident. A total of four people were
displaced. Four dogs perished in the fire. The Red Cross was called to assist in finding shelter for the
displaced occupants. One firefighter was treated and released at the scene by Montgomery County
Hospital District EMS for dehydration.
The Conroe Fire Department Fire Marshal’s Office has begun an investigation into the origin and cause
of the fire. Although originally a commercial structure, it was being used as a primary residence for the
four displaced occupants. Adjacent spaces were in various stages of renovation into residential
spaces. There was no permit information found on file with the City of Conroe for this construction. It
appears the fire originated within the portion of the building currently being utilized as a residence.
The investigation is in the very early stages. Further information will be released as it becomes
