A couple in northwest Houston escaped from their house after smelling smoke. It happened at a home off Martin near Park Plaza. Last night, a man bumped the knob on his stove and caught a grocery bag on fire. He thought he put out the flames, and put the bag in the trash but the fire reignited.

The man and his wife were not hurt, but there was some damage done to the house.
