WACO, Texas, May 16 (UPI) -- Gloria Campos Viera, 64, was found dead in her home in Waco, Texas, after a fire broke out late Monday morning.

Firefighters were at the home two minutes after the alarm at 11:19 a.m., but the house was already engulfed in flames.

Neighbors told them a woman was inside, but firefighters had difficulty entering the house because the back door was blocked.

Firefighters found Viera on the bathroom floor, the Waco Tribune-Herald reported.

The cause of the fire was still being investigated, said John Johnson, Waco Fire Department Chief.
