Wichita Falls Fire Investigators believe a Wednesday early morning house fire was caused by a stove being left on overnight.

Just before 6 a.m., firefighters were called to a home on Lavell Avenue where flames had been seen through the front window of the home.

It only took crews about five minutes to put the fire out.

Fire officials said the stove may have been left on when the homeowner fell asleep.

There were no injuries, but their damage was estimated at about $20,000.
