The Tyler Fire Department responded to a two-alarm structure fire last night at 707 Forest.

The initial call was received at 11:18 p.m. and the caller reported seeing fire coming from a house.

First arriving units saw fire on arrival and called for a second alarm. Five engines and one Ladder Company, along with a District Chief and an Investigator, responded to the scene.
