A fire ripped through a home on the south side Sunday night in Houston's south side. It happened around 8:45pm at a home on Ward and Lasalette. Fire crews say a window air conditioner caught fire and the flames quickly spread though a bedroom. Firefighters were able to stop the flames before they spread to the entire house.

The homeowner suffered some inhalation but did not need to go to the hospital.
