A 300 foot pillar of black smoke towered over southeast Houston on Monday. The smoke is from a huge fire at an abandoned three acre tire dump. Officials blame the fire on car thieves who set fire to a stolen car near the entrance. The heat from the fire ignited the tires, which are piled as high as 65 feet in some areas. It took firefighters more than an hour to lay hoses before they could begin to battle the blaze. Officials say the fire could burn for several days.
