A couple in northeast Houston narrowly escaped a fire that ripped through their home early this morning.

Officials say the fire started around 12:30am at a home on Boggess and Deanna. The garage was completely destroyed.

The fire was so intense it even melted the siding of the house next door.

Everyone was able to make it out of the home safely.

Houston Fire Department officials say a faulty water heater in the garage sparked the blaze.
