TYLER, Texas — Fire of­fi­cials say a third per­son has died of in­juries from a house fire in Texas.

The Tyler Fire Depart­ment in East Texas said Sun­day in a state­ment that a 60-year-old woman died at a Dal­las hospi­tal.

A 40-year-old man and a child died Satur­day of in­juries from the fire, which oc­curred Fri­day night in Tyler, about 100 miles south­east of Dal­las. Two other chil­dren re­main hos­pi­tal­ized in crit­i­cal but sta­ble con­di­tion.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors say the fire orig­i­nated in the liv­ing room area, but they’re still in­ves­ti­gat­ing what caused the blaze.
