The family was home at the time of the fire and none were injured, according to the fire district
Firefighters were called to the scene and found the structure fully engulfed, with flames and embers reaching about 100 feet in the air, district representatives said.
Crews attacked the fire from the perimeter but because of the amount of personal contents around the property it made for a difficult stretch hose and fight the fire, Assistant Chief Dan Orr said in a press release.
The structure is a total loss and estimated at $10,000, while the shed’s contents were also a total loss, estimated at $5,000.
Cause of the fire is still under investigation.
