A fire Friday night destroyed a shed south of Dorrance.

At 5:28 PM Friday, Russell Dispatch received two 911 calls advising of a shed on fire at Larry Herber’s residence approximately two miles south of Dorrance on the blacktop.

The Dorrance, Bunker Hill, Wilson and Russell Grant Fire Departments responded, along with Russell County EMS and Russell County Sheriff’s Officers.

According to Dorrance Fire Chief Ron Major, the 30-by-28 foot shed was completely destroyed. A Polaris Ranger UTV, a mower and several tools were lost in the blaze. Major estimates $80,000 of damage was done.

The fire was caused by grass caught under the Polaris Ranger according to Major.

The fire departments were on scene for about two hours.

There were no injuries.
