Baumgartner said the 10-by-30-foot shed contained "common materials" that sustained fire damage. An asphalt truck next to the shed also sustained minor damage. The fire was brought under control in about 20 minutes.

No injuries were reported.

A cause of the fire wasn't immediately known, and Baumgartner said authorities would continue to investigate.
