A house fire in Texarkana, Texas, has claimed the life of a 3-year-old girl.

Fire Capt. Russell Jones told the Texarkana Gazette that the body of Alicia Spencer was found inside the home after the fire was put out Sunday. Jones said the girl did not live at the home -- but her residence was not immediately released.

Jones said several people who escaped the burning home had tried to go back inside to get the girl -- but the fire was too intense.

Jones says one resident told firefighters that the blaze started in an air conditioner window unit and foul play is not suspected.
