Smith County Fire Marshal Jim Seaton has confirmed one woman is dead after a house fire at 10982 County Road 2209, just east of Tyler.
Seaton says there is also an unconfirmed report another person may have been inside in the burning home.
Emergency crews are on still on the scene and investigators are waiting for the structure to cool off before they go room by room searching for a possible second person.
We will have more information as it becomes available.
