TYLER (KYTX) - The Tyler Fire Department responded to the scene of a two-alarm structure fire this morning at the Meadowbrook Apartments at 4600 Paluxy Dr.  The initial call was received at approximately 9:15 a.m.   Five engines and one Ladder Company, along with a district chief and an investigator, responded to the scene.  The fire was quickly brought under control.

Upon arrival, firefighters reported smoke in one apartment unit and upgraded to a second alarm.  Firefighters quickly determined the source and extinguished the fire, which caused only minor fire damage.  There were no injuries reported and no occupants were displaced as a result of the fire.

Investigators have determined that the fire originated in a concealed space in the ceiling as a result of an electrical malfunction associated with the heating unit.
