SPICELAND, Ind. Authorities say they believe a woman has been killed by a fire in a small central Indiana town that also badly hurt her husband.

Firefighters were called about 4 a.m. Thursday to an old barn that had been converted into a home in the Henry County town of Spiceland.

Neighbors tell WISH-TV that they stopped the woman's husband from going back inside the burning home to try and rescue her. The man was taken by helicopter to an Indianapolis hospital with severe burns.

Spiceland fire chief Scott Teague tells WTHR-TV that crews were working to get the blaze completely extinguished before searching for the woman's body.

A cause wasn't immediately determined for the fire in the 900-person town about 30 miles east of Indianapolis.
