TYLER—Firefighters on scene of Monday's fire in downtown Tyler saw smoke just after midnight Wednesday.
Fire officials say the fire did rekindle in the same spot it started Monday night. However, fire fighters were able to keep it under control and extinguish it quickly.
Investigators with the Tyler Fire Department say they will work with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to determine what caused the fire.
Captain Jeff Akin, Tyler Fire Department, says there's no reason to believe the fire was deliberately set ATF's involvement is not uncommon when large fires take place.
Officials say they will try to save the facades of the buildings in case the damaged structures are rebuilt.
