Fire Destroys Cantonment Shed

April 30, 2013

[Updated] Several fire stations responded to a shed fire in Cantonment early Tuesday evening, sending black smoke into the sky that was visible for miles.

The fire was reported about 6:15 in the 400 block of Well Line Road, near the corner of Lakeview Avenue.  The shed, about 400 square feet in size, was completely destroyed in the fire.

The blaze is under investigation by the Florida State Fire Marshal’s Office.

Editor’s note: An earlier  version of this story stated “The first fire units on scene reported the shed was behind a locked gate and a citizen would not allow firefighters on the property.” While that was the report from the first fire units on scene, the fire unit’s report was based upon incomplete information. Fire officials confirmed Wednesday morning that they were allowed access to the property.
