Fire destroys shed in Alexandria
A fire destroyed a shed at 607 5th Avenue East in Alexandria at about 12:30 p.m. Thursday.
When firefighters arrived at the scene, flames were spreading quickly throughout the small structure, sending thick clouds of black smoke into the air.
The fast-moving blaze took down overhead powerlines, setting off sparks of electricity as the lines popped and snapped. A nearby tree also caught fire.
