Firefighters Quickly Extinguish Tyler Fire

Firefighters quickly extinguished a two-acre fire in the Tyler city limits before it could threaten any buildings.

It happened at the intersection of Palace and Gentry just before noon. Witnesses say it started when someone threw a cigarette onto the dry grass.

A small flame ignited and was then fueled by high winds. When crews arrived on the scene, they pulled out all the stops using ladder and brush trucks to quickly get control of the blaze before it could get out of hand.
