Houston police took one man into custody Monday night, after a tense standoff at his Kingwood home.

Investigators said Houston firefighters responded to a smoke alarm call at a couple's house around 7:30 p.m. When crews arrived, they found that someone had set some clothes on fire in the kitchen.

Authorities called police to the scene on Atascocita Lake Drive, because fire officials weren't sure if the fire was set during a domestic dispute between the couple.

SWAT teams also arrived at the home, and by 10 p.m. hostage negotiators managed to convince the woman to come outside.    

According to investigators, the man exited the home about one hour later. Officers took him into custody without incident.
