TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Fire strikes an East Texas home causing extensive damage. Tyler fire fighters responded to the blaze at 938 Duckenfield Ave. around 3:45 a.m. Monday morning.

Fire officials say heavy fire and smoke forced fire fighters to abandon their attempt to fight the blaze from inside the home, causing them to switch to an "exterior attack."

The fire is believed to have been caused by an overloaded electrical circuit. There were no injuries.
