Posted: Updated:

EAST TEXAS (KYTX) - New overnight, an East Texas man dies in an early morning house fire    


It happened around midnight in the Liberty- Eylau area near Texarkana. That's in Bowie county. 

The Sheriff's department there tells us they got a call about a house fire with someone still trapped inside. 

Firefighters couldn't find the victim, identified only as a 60 year old man, until after they got the fire put out. A woman was also injured trying to go back into the home to rescue the man inside. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it's suspected it was  started by fireworks.
