Deadly house fire in Garland spreads to other homes

A woman is dead and a man is in the hospital following a house fire in Garland.

Firefighters got the call to the home on Intrepid Drive around 11:00 p.m. Friday.

Strong winds caused the fire to spread to two other houses, firefighters said.

"My neighbors right here, right directly across the street came over and they told me -hey get out the house, the house next door to you is on fire and I’m like no it's not. I looked out and it was full inferno" said Marlar Mathis, who lives nearby.

The other homes do have some damage. Investigators are trying to determine how the fire started.

The woman who was killed has not been identified. The man is being treated for smoke inhalation, firefighters said.
