Fire crews extinguish house fire on Tyler's northside

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The Tyler Fire Department has extinguished a house fire on E. Line and Virginia in Tyler.

According to authorities, the fire started when a tree limb fell on a power line causing a shower of sparks to fall to the ground and catch some leaves on fire. The fire then spread into the house.

Fire crews responded a little before noon and had the fire out in about 10 minutes.

Nobody lives in the house. The power company is sending crews to trim the tree so this situation does not happen again.
