CASEY, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a woman has died in a central Iowa house fire.

Des Moines television station KCCI reports (http://bit.ly/29eQu6L ) that firefighters from several departments were called to the fire in Casey on Friday afternoon. The first firefighters to arrive found the house full of smoke. The body of a woman was found inside about 10 feet from the front door.

Officials say her husband was outside the home and had suffered significant burns to his head, neck and hands. The couple’s names have not yet been released.

Guthrie County Deputy Sheriff Kent Gries says concrete workers nearby saw the smoke and called 911. Guthrie says the workers tried to get inside the house to help, but that the smoke was too thick and the house too hot to enter.
