According to Fire Chief Eric Harlow, the fire started near the fence line and made its way to the building, that housed several items including an ATV.

Harlow believed the fire caused an estimated $10,000 worth of damage.

Fire crews were able to keep the fire away from a home and camper that was sandwiched between the metal building.

Majority of the land was burned, but no injuries were reported.
