TYLER, TX (KLTV) -
Maintenance men at a Tyler nursing home managed to extinguish a grass fire that started outside of the building Thursday afternoon.
Jenny King, administrator and owner of Park Place Nursing Home, said a small grass fire started just outside of the building. Fire crews and Tyler police responded to the scene, but workers at the nursing home had the fire out by the time they arrived.
King tells KLTV that there was, "never any danger and that no evacuation was needed." She said the fire was very small and very contained.
Other media outlets reported that the fire was in a gas line inside the nursing home.
Park Place Nursing Home is located at 2405 E. 5th Street in Tyler.
