SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - East Texas firefighters are battling a blaze at 640 Frederick Circle in Flint.

Fire fighters were called to the scene at about 6:15 Monday evening. Witnesses say about seven fire vehicles are on the scene.

A neighbor who spoke with KLTV said a family lives in the home, but no one was home when the fire broke out. The neighbor added that, initially, the blaze was quite large, but it seems to be dying down as firefighters are working to control the flames.

Our photographer on the scene says the fire seems to be confined to the home's attic and roof.
