A garage fire forced a family out of their northeast Houston home overnight.

The detached garage of the home on Long Creek at Bent Bough caught fire just after 1am.

A man in the home was still awake at the time. He smelled smoke, discovered the fire and got his wife and son out. The fire destroyed the garage and a vehicle inside before firefighters put it out.

No one was hurt. Investigators believe the fire to be the result of an electrical problem.
