A wind-driven fire destroyed a home on Saratoga near Athlone in northwest Houston.
The Houston Fire Department said a man was inside the home when the fire began and was able to get out and avoid injury.
Firefighters were called to the home around 11:15 a.m.
Firefighters don't yet know what caused the fire, but said it appeared to start in a back bedroom.
The homeowner told Local 2 he burned paper in the fireplace this morning but didn't know if that could have led to the fire.
