TYLER, Texas (AP) - Fire officials have released the name of an East Texas woman who was killed after a stove in her house apparently exploded.

Smith County assistant fire marshal Oren Hale on Wednesday said 68-year-old Gladys Jean Garner died after her home caught fire in rural Smith County.

Hale says her husband, 70-year-old James Travis Garner, remains in Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas with severe burns following the explosion Tuesday morning.
