WICHITA FALLS, TX - Two people are injured following a massive structure fire in Wichita Falls Wednesday morning, according to a family member on scene. That family member told Newschannel 6 crews that one person was taken to the hospital for second and third-degree burns, while the other was taken for smoke inhalation.

Wichita Falls Fire Department, Wichita Fall Police Department, and the Wichita County Sheriff's Office responded to the call at 3:44 a.m. Wednesday. The two story home on the 500 block of Austin Street suffered damages amounting to around $65,000, according to a Wichita Falls Fire Investigator.

Officials say the fire may have been caused by an electrical shortage in the living room.
