EAST TEXAS (KYTX) - An early morning fire damages a Tyler home and a person inside suffered some injuries. 

It happened just before 4 a.m. in the 800 block of South Turner street. That's near Stewart middle school. 

Firefighters say an elderly couple was having trouble with their TV before going to bed. 

When they tried to unplug it, they heard a "poof" and saw flames. The cause of the fire is under investigation. 

One person inside suffered some minor burns to the hand, but refused medical treatment.
