A Cass County man died in a house fire just outside of Hughes Springs, Texas early Sunday morning.  

Hughes Springs VFD Chief Jay Cates confirms firefighters were called around 1:30 a.m. Sunday to 245 CR 2873 in Hughes Springs, just outside city limits. The home was already burned down by the time they arrived.

Cates says the home owner and only occupant, 83-year-old James Griffin, died in the fire.

His body has been sent for autopsy. The state fire marshal is also on scene investigating, because it's a fatality.
