    One person was injured Wednesday when a house caught fire in Venus.

    The fire broke out inside a home near Farm-to-Market Road 157 and County Road 511 and quickly grew to 5-alarms, according to Johnson County fire dispatchers.

    Firefighters from both Mansfield and Venus began fighting the fire shortly before noon. 

    An air ambulance transported one person to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas.  The person had 2nd- and 3rd-degree burns, but they were not believed to be life-threatening.

    The cause of the fire is under investigation.
