COLUMBIA — A shed fire in a residential neighborhood Wednesday night caused about $300 in damage.
Firefighters responded to a call Wednesday at 8:01 p.m. after residents of a house on Maplewood Drive noticed their shed was on fire, according to Jerry Jenkins, a division chief with the Columbia Fire Department.
The occupants called 911 and immediately started extinguishing it with a garden hose, Jenkins said.
Five fire trucks, one ambulance and two chief officers responded within five minutes and extinguished the fire by about 8:10 p.m.
Jenkins estimated the damage to be approximately $300.
"Most of the damage was to the siding and to the wooden floor," he said.
No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire could not be determined.
"I'm not sure that we will (determine the cause)," Jenkins said.
