TURNERS FALLS — A storage shed was destroyed when a fire broke out Tuesday night.

Firefighters quickly put out the fire, which started in a shed behind the house at 15 South High St. at about 7:45 p.m. The shed, however, was heavily damaged.

The cause was still uncertain Tuesday night.

“We looked it over, and didn’t find any obvious cause,” said Fire Chief Robert Escott Jr. “The fire marshal may come out tomorrow, but a lot of the time, things are damaged beyond recognition” and a cause cannot be determined.

Firefighters were able to keep the fire contained. Though a picket fence next to the shed was partially charred, the flames were kept from spreading to nearby homes.
