HOT SPRINGS, AR (AP) - A fire at home near Lake Hamilton in Garland County has killed one person.

Firefighters say the body was found inside the home on the south shore of the lake after the fire was brought under control Sunday afternoon.

The person's name has not been released. Lake Hamilton Fire Chief Matt Simpson said the body has been turned over to the coroner for positive identification and to determine the cause of death.

Simpson said the fire was reported about 1 p.m. Sunday and the home was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. He said it appears the fire started in the kitchen - but the cause has not been determined.
