TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Tyler fire crews say a large fire destroyed Moose Auto Glass in the 4200 block of Timms Street in Tyler on Monday evening.

The first call came in at 7:11 p.m., and eventually five engines and two ladder companies, along with a district chief and an investigator, responded to the scene.

Investigators say the fire started in the middle of the building, but the cause is still undetermined.

Authorities say that one of the primary concerns in fighting the fire was the propane tank and seven vehicles that were inside the business when the fire started. Part of the structure collapsed during the fire, slowing fire crews' ability to quickly fight the fire.

The garage is a total loss. The office also suffered moderate damage.

"Moose Auto Glass has been around for years, a long time," said Wes Dobbs, a member of the Moose family. "It started downtown to here and has grown tremendously and it's just gonna be a big loss for the family. But thank God nobody was hurt."

Family members say they plan to rebuild. According to the company website, Moose has been in business in Tyler since 1954, originally on West Erwin Street.
