A Logan woman died Monday in an early morning house fire, the Panola County Sheriff’s Office said.
Mary Ann Carlton was killed in the blaze on FM 3359, the sheriff’s office said. No foul play is suspected, the sheriff’s office said.
Officials responded to a house fire in the 3000 block around 6:15 a.m. Monday. When deputies arrived, they found Carlton’s husband, who said he believed she was still inside the house.
The husband told officials the house was on fire on the front left side and he had tried to get in through the back door, but the fire was too hot and he wasn’t able to get inside very far.
Carlton’s body was later found inside near the front door.
The sheriff’s office said several fire departments, including the Flatwoods Volunteer Fire Department, responded to put out the blaze.
Panola County JP David Gray pronounced Carlton dead. Her body was taken to Dallas for an autopsy.
