UPDATE: Fire destroys shed near Eyota

Posted: Updated:

EYOTA, Minn. (KTTC) --Fire crews battled a shed fire near Eyota Wednesday morning.

Eyota and Dover Fire Departments were called to the 10,000 block of County Road 9 just after 3:30 a.m.

According to fire officials, when firefighters arrived, the entire shed was engulfed in flames. A passerby on their way to work noticed the fire, and woke up the home owners, Renee and Bradly Beirbaum.

They made it out without injury.

Firefighters tell us the biggest concern was to protect the home, and that they were able to keep the flames from spreading to the residence.

Powerlines were damaged in the fire, but no one was injured.

The Olmsted County Sheriff's office says an outdoor wood boiler is where the fire likely started. Damage is estimated at $30,000 to $35,000 dollars.
