Martin Huhn, department spokesperson and firefighter, said the shed caught fire at around 12:30 a.m. near the intersection of Highway 3 and McCarron Creek Road. The unoccupied shed, which Huhn described as “a large one-storey workshop, was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived shortly thereafter.

No one was hurt in the blaze, still under investigation as of Thursday morning. Five firefighters worked through the night, after which the shed lay in charred ruins.

Two vehicles parked in front of the shed were damaged by heat, but surrounding homes and outbuildings were not affected by the fire, Huhn said.
