Fire destroys metal shed in Hudson

Jun 27, 2013 - From staff reports

A structure fire in Hudson required two visits from emergency responders last weekend.

No one was injured in the blaze, which initially was reported at about 11:15 p.m. Friday from the 300 block of Illinois Avenue in Hudson.

Fremont County Fire Protection District deputy chief Dan Oakley said a metal storage shed was destroyed in the incident, though the resident's home was not damaged.

"The people live in a travel trailer (that) was probably within 20 feet of the shed," Oakley said.

Firefighters cleared the scene Friday but were called back to the property just before 6 a.m. Saturday.

"Some hot spots started to smoke, so (the residents) called them back to cool it down and shut it down," Oakley said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but on Tuesday Oakley said the incident does not appear suspicious.
