A 12 year old boy is injured in a fire at a duplex in Longview.

It happened around 7:15 last night at a home on the 300 block of  Jester Court in west Longview.  

Investigators said the fire began in the child's room and quickly scorched the interior of the home.

The 12 year old sustained minor burns and was treated and released from a local hospital.

Investigators think electrical problems may have sparked the fire.
