Firefighters were called out to a burning home on Houston's south side last night. The house on Holloway near Murr Way caught fire around 10:30pm. There were heavy flames coming from the garage of the one story home when firefighters arrived.

The elderly woman who lives in the house escaped safely. Firefighters managed to put the flames out in 15 minutes but the flames did burn part of a neighboring home.

Firefighters believe an electrical problem is to blame.
