Fire In South Tyler; One Body Found

The Tyler Fire Department is called out to a house fire overnight and find a body at the back of the home.  The fire started just after midnight in the 1500 Block of Santa Fe Trail in South Tyler. When they arrived, firefighters say the house was in flames.  After the fire was put out investigators say they found a body at the back of the residence.  The cause of death and identity of the victim has not been confirmed, but neighbor's say they believe it may be the owner of the house.

"When I realized it was the co-workers, I was really devastated," said neighbor Samjay Gupta.  "Just because we work closely at Trane.  It hits hard when it's somebody that you know and you see on a daily basis."  Tyler Fire Investigators told KLTV 7 an autopsy has been ordered on the body.
