A local man says 'divine intervention' kept him safe from a fire that burned part of his home in southwest Houston. James Stringer, 75, isn't really sure what woke him up Wednesday morning. But he went outside to find a fire on the outside of his house at Rowan and Albacore. He was able to put it with a hose, but called firefighters anyway.

Stringer says the fire was behind some plywood and it's very similar to a fire just last week at his neighbors home.

Arson investigators brought out the K-9 unit to help look for what may have been used to start the fire.
