Crews battle fire involving generator

Posted: Updated:

Tyler firefighters responded to a fire involving a generator at a home on the 2300 block of Devine Street.

The fire was reported at 1:45 p.m. When the call came in, the generator was burning near a storage building behind the home.

When firefighters saw the smoke as they approached the scene, they called for a second alarm. Five fire engines and one ladder truck were used to battle the flames.

The storage building was engulfed by flames by the time fire crews arrived on the scene. Propane bottles were in that building, but crews were able to prevent those bottles from overheating.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
