Shed burns up in early morning fire

Fire ripped through a 10-foot by 15-foot shed in the 200 block of Charlotte Anne Road at 4:40 a.m. today, leaving a burnt shell behind.

The fire's cause is still under investigation, but officials from Medford Fire-Rescue said it could be human caused.

"There was no power to (the building," said battalion chief Ken Goodson.

The fire prompted a two-engine response. Goodson said the shed was fully involved in flames when crews arrived. Seven firefighters spent about four minutes spraying water on the fire before it was extinguished. No one was hurt.

The shed was behind the old Kim's Restaurant building.
