A family had to run out of their southwest Houston home after it caught fire last night.

The fire broke out around 11:30pm at a house on Towerview at Ruppstock.

There was a family with small children in the house at the time. One person noticed the smoke and everyone got out safely.

"We saw orange. I saw a fire. I ran downstairs and we got the baby and got out of the house. That's all I remember," said fire victim India Strong.

Fire crews were able to put out the fire. It was isolated to one bedroom. Investigators say the fire appears to be electrical.
