The Lake Park Fire Department was paged to the fire at 5:20 AM Friday morning. It was located about 2 miles south of Highway 9, at 1707 100th Street, just west of the county line in Osceola County.
When firefighters got there, they saw that the shed was fully engulfed in flame. That’s when they called for mutual aid assistance from the Harris and Ocheyedan Fire Departments.
The cause was ruled as accidental, but there was no speculation as to a more specific cause.
There were no injuries to people, pets, or livestock.
The shed and its contents were completely destroyed, including 15 round hay bales on the side of building. A loader was also lost in the fire, and a cattle confinement building was also damaged.
The Lake Park Rescue Crew, Dickinson County Emergency Management and the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office assisted the fire departments at the scene.
