TYLER-A fire destroys a house and officials aren't sure exactly what caused the blaze. It happened on the 400 block of South Bonner around 7:40 p.m. Sunday.
Neighbors we spoke with say they saw smoke, called the fire department, then some of them actually got out their own water hoses and started fighting the blaze themselves. A few minutes later fire firefighters arrived on scene and took over. Officials say it didn't take long for them to put out the blaze. They say they could have been able to put it out quicker but the firefighters who were inside actually had to leave for a few minutes because at one point the fire got too dangerous for the firemen to be inside. Officials say a woman and her two children live in the home but were not home when the fire started.
The cause of the fire is still unknown.
