Houston detectives are investigating an unusual fight between a couple in southwest Houston.

Investigators tell Eyewitness News the woman was upset at the man for not bringing home charcoal for the grill. The argument reportedly escalated to the point where the pair allegedly poured lighter fluid on each other.

Someone apparently lit a match, and the man was severely burned. He later died of a heart attack.

Police are questioning the woman now. It's unknown if any charges will be filed.
