Investigators are working to pinpoint the source of the fire that claimed the life of an elderly woman and seriously burned her daughter at their mobile home in western Hidalgo County.
The flames broke out at around 4 Tuesday afternoon and quickly engulfed the home on Concepcion Avenue. 89-year-old Gregoria Lara suffered burns over most of her body and died at the hospital. Her daughter, Consuela Azua, was transported to a specialty hospital in San Antonio with severe burns over about 30 percent of her body. The blaze destroyed the mobile home.
