Henrico fire crews believe a portable heater may have caused a fire late Sunday night.

Flames broke out inside of the bedroom of a house in the 8300 block of Cardova Road around 10 p.m., according to Henrico Fire crews. The woman who lived inside managed to escape without injuries.

The fire is believed to have been caused due to an electric heater too close to the bed inside of the room, but the exact cause is still under investigation.

The woman is staying with friends following the fire, according to Henrico Fire crews.
