Hull, Iowa– A small shed was destroyed in a fire on Friday morning, February 8, 2019, near Hull.
According to Hull Fire Chief Greg Van Roekel, about 6:30 a.m., the Hull Fire Department was called to the report of a doghouse on fire close to a garage at 3560 300th Street, two miles east of Hull, two miles north, and another half mile east.
The chief says the fire department saw the 4’x 8′ shed fully engulfed in flame as they approached the scene. He says they used water to fight the fire.
Van Roekel says no injuries were reported, and the dog was fine.

He says they responded with one truck and were on scene for only about 15 minutes.
