BANGS, Texas -

A heat lamp may have been the cause of a house fire near Bangs.

Around 3 a.m. Monday, Bangs, Lake Bridge and the Dam volunteer fire departments responded to a home at 2400 County Road 159.

Fire Marshal Buddy Preston said smoke detectors woke the family of seven. The family made it out of the house safely.

Preston said he believed a heat lamp in the garage was the cause of the fire.
