SEYMOUR, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say a southwest Missouri woman died in a house fire but a man and three children were able to escape.

The fire was reported early Sunday near Seymour. The woman’s identity has not been released.

Southern Webster County authorities say the home was 80 percent involved in flames when firefighters arrived at the home early Sunday, and the flames were too intense to rescue the woman.

KYTV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1n5pB7l ) the man and one child were taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries that were not life threatening.

The Missouri Division of Fire Safety says an investigator could not determine the cause of the fire because the home was so damaged, but nothing suspicious was found.
