A Tyler firefighter was injured Wednesday in a morning blaze.
Investigators said they believe the fire started in the front of the building in an area that was used as a bedroom, the release states, but the exact cause remained under investigation by the Tyler Fire Marshal's Office.
None of the residents were injured in the fire, but a firefighter suffered second-degree burns while battling the blaze.
The firefighter was taken to a local hospital for treatment and released on Wednesday. Paul Findley, spokesman for the Tyler Fire Department, said they expect the firefighter to be back to work on Friday.
“He's doing good,” Findley said. “We are fortunate that he didn't suffer any worse injures. Basically his protective gear did its job, but he did have spots where he (was) burned.”
