TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Multiple crews are at the scene of a fire that destroyed a home in southwest Tyler early Thursday.
Just before 3 a.m., Tyler firefighters were called to the 2000 block of Boswell Street, off Frankston Highway, where the glow of flames were visible in the sky from a half-mile away.
Crews were able to extinguish the flames in about an hour, though the home appeared to be a total loss. A pickup parked next to the house also burned.
Everyone made it out of the house unharmed, according to a family member.
An investigation is underway, but the cause of the fire has not been released.
A representative from the American Red Cross says the organization is offering temporary lodging assistance to the family.
