TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

A family of six is displaced after a fire destroyed their home Sunday evening.

Fire crews responded to a structure fire around 5:00 p.m. located in the 1300 block of Travis Street. Spectators gathered in front yards and on porches as crews fought back the flames.

"I saw this huge cloud of smoke coming up," Bryce Selman said, describing what it looked like from down the street at his grandfather's house. "We walked up and fire was bursting out of the front door."

The blaze lead to a multiple engine response after several neighbors made 911 calls.

"I heard screaming," Miriam Ramirez said, "I came [out front] to get a better look and I saw the house on fire."

She was in her back yard with her family when she heard screams and glass breaking. The view in her front yard revealed the flames taking away her neighbors' home. She says she immediately called 911.

No injuries were reported, and the family of six was not home when it happened. They arrived at the scene as fire fighters finished putting out the flames. Four children sat on the curb across from the house, and firefighters gave them stuffed animals as they wrapped up their gear.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
