A space heater is being blamed for starting a house fire on Houston’s south side. A man who was in the home turned on the space heater Wednesday evening to keep warm.

According to investigators, the man then woke up and knocked the heater over around 10:30 p.m. Upon knocking it over, the man’s quilt caught fire and then that fire quickly spread to the rest of the man’s bedroom furniture.

Although the man was able to evacuate the home safely, he did reportedly have a minor burn on his hand. No other injuries were reported.
