The Ellsworth Fire Department and Ellsworth Ambulance Service were sent to the Brian M. and Deanna M. Hines property, N6745 750th St., Beldenville, at 5:45 a.m. Wednesday for a possible structure fire.

Rafters in a pole shed were said to be on fire with other structures nearby. An officer on-scene said light smoke was showing and several rafters could be seen on fire, but the owner was "hitting it with a garden hose and it's pretty much out."

River Falls Fire Department also responded.
