OLMSTED COUNTY, Minn. - Two rural fire departments battled an early-morning fire in snowy, windy, and rainy conditions Thursday.
The call came in just before 3:30 a.m. of a shed on fire. Olmsted County Sheriff's deputies arrived to see a shed engulfed in flames at 2851 105th Ave. SW in Salem Township.
The family was forced to evacuate from their house due to the proximity of the fire to the home and a fuel tank.
No one was hurt and the shed, which contained “mostly junk,” was a total loss, according to the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office.
Byron Fire Department, Kasson Fire Department, Gold Cross ambulance, and the Olmsted Sheriff's Office assisted on scene.
