TIKI ISLAND — Black smoke poured into the sky above a normally quiet village opposite Galveston Island on Wednesday morning, as fire crews worked to put out a quick-moving blaze in an unoccupied rental home.

Emergency responders began receiving calls about the fire just after 9 a.m., said Tiki Island Fire Chief Micah Simons. The building at 1115 Makatea Street was engulfed when the first responders arrived, he said.
