HOUSTON --A cigarette may be the cause of a house fire in northeast Houston. This happened at the home on King near Jensen around midnight. Firefighters say a man was smoking in bed when the mattress caught fire. He tried to put it out, but the flames began to spread. The man and his mother escaped the home unharmed.
Firefighters arrived and managed to contain the fire to the bedroom and part of the attic. No one was hurt.
