Garage Apartment Fire Injures Firefighter

A Tyler garage apartment goes up in flames and injures a firefighter.  Firefighters were called out to the 1200 block of North Pabst Avenue around 11:30, Thursday morning.  No one was at home at the time of the fire, but it is a total loss.  Investigators say because of the structure's instability they don't know the exact cause of the fire.  Investigators say one of the residents did report having electrical problems.

One firefighter suffered 2nd degree burns on his hand.  A dog was also injured and taken by animal control.
