SHALLOWATER, TX (KCBD) -  An afternoon house fire in Shallowater turned deadly Friday.

NewsChannel 11 has learned a house fire claimed the life of one person inside Friday afternoon. The name and age of the victim has not been released yet. West Carlisle Fire Chief says the victim was found in a bedroom and that there was only one person inside the house.

The tragic fire was contained to the back of the house. Flames and smoke engulfed the home shortly after 3 p.m. Neighbors say they came out when they heard sirens. They saw firefighters break windows and enter the house through the garage.

Crews from Shallowater and West Carlisle responded and spent one hour battling the blaze.

The medical examiner and State Fire Marshall's office spent three hours collecting evidence and processing the scene working to determine what caused the fire. They say the fire started in the south east bedroom.
