At 9:05 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 17, the River Falls Fire Department responded to N7254 City Rd W for a garage on fire call, according to Fire Chief Scott Nelson.

Arriving crews found smoke coming from a wood pile inside the metal building. The fire was quickly extinguished and firefighters removed the smoldering wood from the shed.

Two engines and two water tankers responded along with 22 River Falls firefighters. The structural framing and siding of the shed sustained some fire damage. No one was injured and damage estimates are not available at this time.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Fire units cleared the scene at approximately 10:40 p.m.
