Jefferson City Fire Department responds to shed fire
JEFFERSON CITY - The Jefferson City Fire Department responded to a shed fire at the 100 block of West Circle Drive.
The fire department units arrived to find a detached shed on fire, and the fire was spreading to the nearby house. All residents had exited the house prior to the Department’s arrival.

Units remained on the scene for 2 and a half hours to investigate the fire and make sure the building was extinguished. Four fire apparatus and a chief officer responded to the scene.
The occupants were able to remain in the home.
The fire remains under investigation.
