Couple escapes unharmed from Beaumont house fire

Posted: Updated:

A couple escaped unharmed from a Beaumont house fire Friday night.

Beaumont Fire Captain Earl White told 12News that a woman and a handicapped man were inside the home when the fire ignited shortly after 9 p.m. at a house in the 3800 block of Irving in the city's south end.  He said the fire appears to have been accidental and may have been caused by an improperly installed fireplace.

The fire caused major damage to the home's attic.

The American Red Cross is providing assistance to the couple.
