PAIGE, Texas (KXAN) — Firefighters found a person dead after putting out a fire in a Bastrop County home Tuesday morning.

It’s currently unknown if the victim was a man or a woman, according to Bastrop County ESD 2 Chief Josh Gill. The house, a single-story home, was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.
