A woman escaped a burning home on Houston's south side overnight. It happened at Dacca near Safeguard just after 11pm. The woman was home by herself when she woke up to the smell of smoke.

Officials with the Houston Fire Department say a gas furnace caught fire and sent flames straight up through the roof. No one was hurt.
