Firefighters Respond To Alarm At Jail

Some tense moments in Downtown Tyler Sunday, as firefighters were called out to the Smith County Jail.

Around 1 p.m., crews were called out to the jail because of smoke on the building's second floor.  The smoke had set off an alarm alerting the fire department.

It turns out that smoke was caused by an overworked air conditioning unit.  No inmates were evacuated and there were no injuries.
