HOUSTON -

A wheelchair-bound man was not hurt after a fire destroyed most of his northeast Houston home.

Firefighters found the home on Kashmere already in flames when they arrived around 2 a.m. Sunday.

They were able to put the fire out before the house was completely destroyed.

Investigators with the Houston Fire Department believe the man left a space heater on, which sparked the blaze.

The man was not home at the time of the fire.
