Tyler, TX Law enforcement representatives from the area have not yet named the three people that died in a fire that happened in Tyler, Texas on February 9th, 2019.

Right now, police in charge of the investigation have only said that a fire broke out in the living room of a residence in the 1800 block of North Grand Avenue.

Five residents involved in the fire were taken to hospitals in Shreveport and Dallas with serious injuries. A 40-year-old man, a 60-year-old woman, and a child all succumbed to their injuries at the hospital. Two others remain in serious conditions.

Additional details regarding the cause of the fire are still under investigation at this time.

Commentary

It’s tragic to read about any accident like this, but a lot of people tend to write them off unfairly. There’s a general perception that house fires are always caused by the resident making a mistake. This certainly happens, but that’s not always the case. There could be faulty wiring, leaking gas lines, a product defect leading to the fire, etc. Only once all these possibilities have been explored can anyone draw a proper conclusion.

Another factor that few people consider is that many house residents rent the property. In those cases, it’s crucial to find out what condition the property was in leading up to the fire. If the landlord knew about or should have known about a hazardous condition that led to the fire–or perhaps worsened the situation, like not having working smoke detectors–then those are things the landlord can face consequences for.

Hopefully there are experienced investigators looking into this, because there is no doubt a family out there going through unimaginable hardship. They deserve to get some clear answers about what happened here and how it could’ve been avoided.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

I appreciate how you've commentated on this tragedy--informative, with questions, but not hurtful. I live within 30 mins of this crash site, and I am appalled at the entire situation :(. I can't even begin to understand what could have happened to make this come to fruition, but I will be keeping up with it so I can learn what investigations bring to light about how something awful like this could happen. Rest in peace, Thomas, Carolyn and Carolyn...

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
