ZAVALLA, TX (KTRE) - The house of a Zavalla woman, whose husband is working as a contractor in Iraq, burned Sunday.

The fire started at the home off Hickory Hill Road.  Zavalla firefighters say it appears a portable window air conditioning unit was plugged into an outlet that overloaded.

Two bedrooms and a bathroom are a total loss.  The master bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen sustained heat, water, and smoke damage.

Huntington and Ora Volunteer Fire Departments also responded to the blaze.
