Rose Creek, Adams, Mitchell County and Stacyville firefighters battled a shed fire in Adams for several hours Tuesday afternoon.
Mower County Sheriff Terese Amazi said the property owner at 62223 130th Street called in the fire shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday once he heard from his sister that his shed was on fire.
No one was injured in the fire, but the shed was declared a total loss. The owner also lost a tractor and tractor equipment, a large square bailer, two wagon boxes, two side rakes, a 1977 Ford pickup, three sets of dual tractor tires and bedding hay, among other possessions.
