Water Heater and Gas Can Fuel South Tyler Fire

   A fire that destroyed a home on Elmridge Drive in Tyler Tuesday was started in the garage.

   Fire investigators now say they believe a gas can sitting near a water heater started the blaze. Other flammable materials in the garage probably helped spread the fire. The fire department said the home is a total loss. It took five units to knock down the flames and keep the fire from spreading to nearby homes.
