Fire swept through the home over former San Antonio state Senator Frank Madla today, killing one man and sending three other people to hospitals.

Officials say they've been unable to positively identify the dead man. San Antonio Fire Chief Randy Jenkins says it's unclear whether the San Antonio Democrat was at home at the time of the pre-dawn fire at the house in the southwest part of the city.

The Bexar County medical examiner says it may take days to positively identify the dead man, who was badly burned.

Two woman and a girl were rescued from the burning house and were revived at the scene before they were airlifted to area hospitals in critical condition.

Madla was first elected to the Legislature as a state representative in 1973. He was promoted to the Senate in 1993 and rose as high as Senate president pro tem. He resigned from the Senate District 19 seat in May after losing the Democratic primary to state Representative Carlos Uresti.

The mostly rural district stretches from southern Bexar (BEHR) County to El Paso.
