Lack Of Oxygen May Have Saved House From Fire

A house on Terra Haute Drive in Tyler caught fire this afternoon, and the exact cause is still not known.

The fire broke out in the living room of the three bedroom home. Firefighter Paul Findley says they were able to contain it pretty easily. He says that could be due to a lack of oxygen to fuel the fire.

"When the first arriving engine company arrived, they were concerned that it had already gotten into the attic, so they were expecting fire when they opened the door. When they opened the door, there was just very little fire," says Findley.

Total damages on the fire are estimated at about $25,000 dollars.
