KISSIMMEE, Fla. – A heater may to blame for a fire that damaged a house in Kissimmee.

The fire broke out Thursday morning at a home on Hiawatha Circle near U.S. Highway 192.

At the time of the fire, a family of five was sleeping inside the house.  They escaped unharmed.

Crews told Local 6 that the fire possibly started in the front of the house and spread to the back.  They spent 40 minutes fighting the flames before extinguishing the blaze.
