TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Tyler Fire Department responded to the scene of a burning building Thursday night.

The building is on the east side of North Broadway in what Tyler Fire Marshal Paul Findley said is an empty strip mall. North Broadway runs behind this building, and it faces the 500 block of North Spring Avenue.

Findley said that four fire engines, a ladder truck, and a battalion chief responded. Some remain at the scene to monitor the fire, which is under control.

Two investigators are now at the scene, Findley said, because there is no electricity to the building so no immediate cause known for a fire to have started.

Tyler police were called to assist with traffic flow.
