COOLIDGE, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a man and his teenage daughter are believed dead and a woman was hospitalized with burn injuries after a farmhouse caught fire in Coolidge following a gas line break.

Pinal County Sheriff's officials say the fire broke out around 5:45 a.m. Sunday after numerous people called about hearing a possible explosion near South Highway 87.

Coolidge City Manager Rick Miller said a woman who was inside of the home was airlifted to a hospital with burn injuries.
