A woman was critically injured in a Killeen house fire Wednesday night, according to Capt. Ethan Gingerich of the Killeen Fire Marshal’s office.

The fire at a single-story home in the 2600 block of Tracy Circle began about 9 p.m., Gingerich said.

It took firefighters about five minutes to contain the fire, he said, but the 30-year-old woman who lived there is in critical condition and is being treated at Parkland Burn Center in Dallas.

“The home sustained moderate damage; some fire damage and some smoke damage,” Gingerich said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, he said.
