HOUSTON -- Firefighters are blaming an antique car for igniting a fire at a galleria-area townhome.

The fire broke out at about 3:25 p.m. Monday along South Post Oak, south of Woodway.

Fire crews said the man tried to start his classic 1978 Cadillac and heard a boom and then saw smoke coming out.

He and his wife weren't hurt, but the fire spread to their townhome and caused significant damage.
