The fire at the apartments on Pinemont near Reno in northwest Houston started just after 11pm.
There was a couple asleep inside, but a smoke detector woke them up and they got out in time. The fire spread to several other apartment units, but everyone escaped.
The exact cause of the fire is under investigation, but the couple tells firefighters they had been having problems with their heater and that may have started it.
