2 homes, 1 barn lost in Tyler fire

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A large structure fire in the Morningside Drive neighborhood in Northeast Tyler prompted an evacuation of homes between Puckett and Loop 323.

Authorities asked motorists to avoid the East Loop. Traffic from onlookers was hampering fire units from getting to the scene.

We're told two homes and a barn were burned in the blaze. 5-10 acres also burned in the fire and a Texas Forest Service helicopter dropped water on the fire.
