A woman was hospitalized after being rescued from a fire at a local apartment complex earlier this week, according to a news release from the Houston Fire Department.

HFD said crews responded to the Candlelight Estates apartments at 818 Pinemont Dr. just after 1:30 a.m. Wednesday to find smoke coming from the first floor of the two-story apartment complex.

A female resident was initially trapped inside, HFD said, and was pulled out through the window and later taken to an area hospital. The department said a small dog was also rescued and left with a neighbor.

Arson investigators later ruled that the fire was accidental, HFD said, having appeared to start on a stovetop in the kitchen before extending to the wall and ceiling. It caused an estimated $25,000 worth of damage, according to the department.
