The Harris County Election Technology Center warehouse in Northeast Houston caught fire early this morning and destroyed over 10,000 voting machines used in Harris County elections.

The fire started around 4:30 this morning and quickly grew to be a three-alarm fire.  Officials are currently unsure of what started the fire, but will begin investigations soon.

The warehouse stored more than 10,000 voting booths and e-Slates used during local, state, and national elections. ¬†Houston city officials said they do not know what they will do for the upcoming governor’s race which begins early voting in October, and has election day on November 2nd.
