(HOUSTON) – Firefighters battled a 2-alarm garage fire Monday morning in northwest Harris County.
The Klein Fire Department responded to a reported explosion and house fire around 6:49 a.m. Monday in the 15100 block of Stonewick Dr.
Firefighters found fire coming from a detached garage, spreading to the home.
Lt. Dean Hensley of the Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office said it appears the explosion was sparked by a propane or oxygen tank leak after the homeowner ignited a cigarette.
“ The home owner sustained injuries and burns as a result of the explosion and fire,” Hensley said. “He was transported by EMS to a hospital.”
A firefighter also pulled a cat from the house, and revived it with oxygen. The cat was taken to the veterinarian for treatment.
