In Citrus City, which is near Alton, Hidlago fire officials are investigating a deadly mobile home fire which killed woman.
Alton Fire Department received a call at 2 a.m. on Tuesday of a house fire and when firefighters arrived, found the mobile home engulfed in flames. Jose Salinas and his two children were inside and made it out, but his wife, Sylvia Salinas, was not able to get out and died in the fire.
Firefighters from Alton, Mission and Palmview helped to put out the blaze and the woman's body was recovered. Officials say that because the home is destroyed, it will make the investigation difficult to determine the cause of the fire.
