TEXARKANA, Texas (AP) - A 78-year-old woman has died after a fire consumed her home in Texarkana.

Lisa Thompson, a spokeswoman for the city of Texarkana, Texas, tells the Texarkana Gazette (https://bit.ly/1KXX3qK ) that firefighters were able to pull Linda Roberson from her burning home on Monday but she later died from her injuries at the hospital.

The house was engulfed when a passing motorist called 911.

The victim’s husband was in the house but was able to get out on his own. Thompson says that he was in the garage area of the house doing laundry when the fire started.

The cause of the fire was not immediately available.
