COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Investigators say one woman has died and a man was severely burned in an overnight fire at Crystal Valley Mobile Home Park on Crystal Dr.

Kathy Bohanon, 62, has been identified as the deceased. Larry Hancock is the second victim. They were in a long-term relationship.

Hancock was treated at the Midtown Medical Center for severe burns. He has first, second, and third degree burns on over half of his body. He was then taken by medical helicopter to a hospital in Atlanta.

Firefighters were dispatched to the mobile home park at 2:08a.m. Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire, but appears to have started at the front of the home.

Bohanon will be sent to Atlanta for an autopsy.
