Shed Fire on Mountain Road

Just before 9 a.m., the Tower was alerted for a reported house fire at 12490 Mountain Road, Pleasant Hall Fire Department's first due. While units were responding, communications advised that the homeowner had a fully involved shed that was near the residence. Assistant Chief 1 was the first to arrive to find a 15x20 shed fully involved with exposure issues. First arriving units put a quick knock on the fire and placed the truck companies in service while they were responding.
