SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

Justice of the Peace James Cowart confirmed that a 78-year-old woman has perished in a Wednesday structure fire.

According to Smith County Fire Marshal Connie Wasson, crews were called to the fire in the 21000 block of County Road 4119 in Lindale at 5 pm. That's where crews found a mobile home in flames.

"Her little dog may have perished in the fire too," Wasson said. "We haven't been able to locate it yet."

There are several more structures on the property. Wasson says the mobile home was the only one affected. She also says the scene will not be cool enough by dark to begin a full investigation.

Investigators will visit the scene again on Thursday to determine the cause.
