WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - One Wichita Falls resident is recovering following a two-alarm fire at his home.

Wichita Falls firefighters were called out to the single-story wooden home in the 1000 block of Austin Street at 3:30 a.m. Friday morning for the blaze.

Fire officials say the fire began in the back of the house as the result of an electrical short.

According to the WFFD, there was $19,000 worth of damage done to the home and $25,000 in damages to the contents inside.
