TYLER—A fire ignites early Friday, destroying a Tyler business.
Tyler firefighters responded to a call just after 4 a.m. Friday at 1222 WSW Loop 323. The call was made by a man traveling on Loop 323.
Officials arrived on scene to find the building, home to Texas Copper Corporation, engulfed in flames. Police report the building is a total loss and may have been caused by a gas leak that began in a closet.
As a result, traffic on the westbound part of Loop 323 near the fire was closed to just one lane during the Friday morning commute.
