Tyler (FOX 51) — UPDATE: Authorities tell FOX 51, that just after 8:00pm, a woman inside the house on Britton Ave noticed smoke.
She ran outside to warn a man who was raking leaves in the yard, but by that point, the house had gone up in flames.
By 10:00pm, Tyler firefighters had put out most of the fire and only a few hot spots remained.
The house was destroyed, but nobody was injured.
The smoke from the blaze could be seen across the city of Tyler.
