Shed Catches Fire, Causes Damage to Home

Firefighters are investigating after a shed caught fire Tuesday night on Modell Drive in the Security-Widefield area.

The fire department says it started in a shed in the backyard, spread to nearby trees, and continued to cause damage to the back of the home and attic.

Michael Bernard, a good Samaritan, was driving by when he saw the flames and took action.

"We jumped a fence and into the backyard and then just sprayed the back of the house because it was already spreading to the house, it was spreading to the fence and everything, but I was more or less worried about the house," Bernard said.

We're told there is smoke damage inside the house. The homeowner was home at the time and able to get out safely.

The cause is still under investigation.
