Car slams into SW Houston home, catches fire

A family is now cleaning up what's left of their home in southwest Houston after a bizarre crash, then fire. Investigators say a car slammed into the house on Huntington Way near Plum Point, making it all the way inside. The car then caught fire and the flames spread to the house.

Everyone got out of the house OK, but firefighters and police couldn't find the person who was driving the car.

Investigators think the driver ran off. They say the family has a long cleanup ahead of them.

"The house is not totaled, but it's probably at least half damaged," said Curtis Seamans with the Houston Fire Deptment.

"It's about $120,000 worth of damage, I would guess."

Right now, it's unclear why the car slammed into the home.
