Early morning house fire claims life of E. Texas woman

DELTA COUNTY (KLTV) - Investigators are looking into the cause of a fatal house fire in Delta County.

Gloria Kirkpatrick, 70, was found dead early Tuesday morning after her house burned down on FM 895 near the Charleston community.

According to authorities, the fire was first reported at around 3:30 am. The house was completely engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived on the scene.

The state fire marshal's office will investigate the cause of the blaze, and a K-9 specializing in accelerant detection will be brought in. However, there is no reason to suspect foul play at this time.
