SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a woman has died and her husband has been injured in a fire at a home in Saratoga Springs.

Police in the upstate city tell the Times Union of Albany (http://bit.ly/2vFBDfr ) that the fire was reported around 10 a.m. Thursday in a two-story home in a housing development on Saratoga's southwestern outskirts.

Lt. Robert Jillson says a woman was killed, while her husband was being flown to a hospital burn unit. The victims' names haven't been released.

Firefighters contained the blaze within a half hour after arriving the scene.

There's no immediate word about a possible cause of the fire.

Damion Hedington, who was staying with his girlfriend's grandparents at their nearby home, told the newspaper he helped the man escape from the burning home.
