Texarkana, Texas -

One person is killed and another injured in a house fire in Texarkana, Texas.

It happened just after 10:00 Tuesday night in the 8300 block of Buchanan Road in the Liberty Eylau community.

When firefighters arrived, the home was fully engulfed in flames.

Fire crews say Darla Myers, 58, died in the fire.

Her husband, Curtis, is being treated for minor burns.

"I asked him where she was located and he said the northeast corner of the house. Then he explained to me that he tried to get out of the house with her and the dogs, but was overcome by the fire," said Liberty Eylau Volunteer Fire Department Lt. Gary Courtney.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Darla Myers' body has been sent to Dallas for an autopsy.
