Fire officials say a woman died and her husband was severely burned when their home caught fire in rural Smith County in East Texas. Smith County assistant fire marshal Oren Hal says crews responded after a stove apparently exploded in the couple's kitchen just before 6 a.m. Tuesday.

The husband was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas with severe burns, Tyler television station KLTV reported.

Fire officials have not released names of the couple. No other injuries were reported.
