A couple was able to escape early Saturday when their house caught fire in Far North Dallas, officials say.
Smoke and flames were coming from the rear of the home in the 6200 block of Southern Knoll Drive when firefighters arrived about 1:15 a.m.
The homeowners were in the house when the husband noticed a flicker while watching television. He checked around and saw fire coming from near his hobby room at the back of the home, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said.
The wife was taken to a local hospital as a precaution for unrelated medical reasons, Evans said.
Investigators think the fire began near the hobby room, but have not determined the cause.
