A Hominy family is mourning the loss of their loved ones. Steven Tyler and his wife Roxanna died in a house fire Christmas night.

We're told when firefighters arrived, the home was engulfed. Hominy Fire Chief, Steve Pitts, said it is difficult to lose such a well-known couple in the community.

"I can't think of anything worse that could happen, especially this time of the year," Pitts said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The couple is survived by their six children.
